Physical activity stimulates pathways in the brain. For all children it is essential to experience and work in the outside environment as much as possible. The outdoors environment offers the opportunity to move on a large scale, to be active, noisy and messy and to use all the senses with the whole body.
At InSPE we have planned outdoor activites and learning opportunites which take place throughout the whole year. It is only in the most inhospitable weather that we don’t venture outdoors. Therefore you need to make sure that your child has the appropriate clothes for outdoor play. The outdoors offers young children essential experiences vital to their well-being, health and development which is why we think it is so important. Please not that if your child is not well enough to be outside then it is very unikely that they are well enough to come to school.
