The benefits of this activity

  • support peer interaction, questioning and listening.
  • give pupils time and purpose to be outside. Opportunities to be outdoors and ‘be mindful’ benefit children’s health and well-being, reducing stress, anxiety and depression and improving concentration and focus.
  • encourage pupils to use their senses and explore their environment. These varied, first-hand experiences could be used as starters for writing tasks or other creative activities. Develop close observation skills, beneficial to all subjects.
  • increase pupils’ vocabulary and extend their use and understanding of nature words.
