What is Learning Outside the Classroom

The built environment

Outdoor learning in the built environment

Learning to see the value of well designed spaces

The built environment is made up of historic and contemporary buildings and the spaces between them, including parks, streets and housing.

Learning about the built environment is about learning to see the value of well designed spaces and the relationship between the natural environment and local community.

We can learn about the built environment in the grounds, and immediate environment, as well as in our cities and streetscapes.
