Environmental Play Teaches Valuable Lessons in Schools

Environmental Play and learning the value of sustainable living should be an essential part of the school curriculum, in my opinion.

As a child I used to love getting my hands dirty in the back garden digging for worms or helping my mum plant some seeds. It was exciting to feel the different textures of the dirt, counting the seeds and watering them, wondering what they will look like in a few weeks.

As children spend more time sat indoors watching television and playing on their computers, it’s more important than ever for schools to encourage children to play and learn outdoors.

Environmental Play can aid children’s development in their school curriculum. It can support numeracy through counting seeds, sequencing and measuring plants as they grow. It can also help with language and literacy, providing links to storytelling, communication and creative writing, such as Jack and the Beanstalk!
