Empty Classroom Day is a day to celebrate and inspire learning and play outside, and we want YOU to get involved!
Join schools from across the world in taking at least one class outdoors, and then see if you can get the rest of your year group outside or maybe your whole school? This year we are focussing on playtime too, it’s just as important as the rest of the school day!
Check out the resources page for inspirational lesson plans, posters and advice on how to make Empty Classroom Day brilliant and how to sustain outdoor play and learning all year round.
Sign up below to take part and be part of a movement that gets children outdoors at school every day!
Empty Classroom Day this year is part of a GLOBAL campaign, backed by Persil’s Dirt is Good movement, so there will be loads of opportunities to share not only with schools across the UK, but across the world. In many other countries Outdoor Classroom Day is taking place on October 6th 2016, if you’d like to join in then please sign up on the International site.
“74% OF UK CHILDREN SPEND LESS TIME OUTDOORS THAN THE 60 MINUTES RECOMMENDED FOR PRISON INMATES. LET'S FIX THIS.”
