Hemel Hempstead pupils reconnected with the great outdoors as they took part in a series of Outdoor Learning Challenges to celebrate National Outdoor Classroom Day.

Lockers Park School pupils immersed themselves in the uplifting activities, which encouraged everything from bug hunting and gardening through to creating their very own bird feeders and camping outside.

The challenges offered the perfect opportunity for pupils, and parents, to reconnect with the great outdoors, enjoy the sunshine and help nurture their physical and emotional well-being.

The global campaign seeks to make outdoor learning a cornerstone of every child’s day, mirroring Lockers Park’s approach to schooling.

Headmaster Christopher Wilson said: “At Lockers Park, we understand that spending time outdoors is as important for children’s development as learning to read and write.

"Playing and learning outside engages and excites children, helping boost their health and happiness. This is more important now than ever before.

"The challenges galvanised pupils to make the most of what we have right on our doorsteps: beautiful Hertfordshire countryside.”
