The idea’s simple – schools sign up and promise to hold at least one lesson outside. Last year, schools around the globe got involved through activities ranging from pond dipping and bug hunting to tree climbing and beachcombing.
It’s a day of problem-solving and teamwork, practical life and social skills – all practised through hands-on holistic learning – that enrich children’s physical, mental and social development. And it is FUN!
Empty Classroom Day happened on Friday 17th June 2016, check out the fun had by children up and down the country on the Empty Classroom Day website!
