Outdoor Time

Your child will spend some time outside every day, weather permitting. Please be aware that your child may get messy because we encourage them to play in the sandbox, engage in messy art activities and help with our garden. Allowing children to get messy is important for their development and their health. Studies have shown that children who play in a “natural playscape” (like ours) will ultimately become better readers. Being engaged in a natural environment makes children more likely to have the confidence to experiment with language when the time comes: for example, sounding out words when they are learning to read.

White Rose Academy participates in International Mud Day. There is a simple reason why International Mud Day was introduced – it is okay to get dirty. Getting dirty is not just okay, but important, natural and instinctive. Digging, squishing and exploring dirt are extensions of how children interact with the world under their (preferably) bare feet. An increasing amount of scientific researchers would seem to agree with this philosophy.

The children are not the only ones who enjoy International Mud Day!
