The Benefits of Shade Shelters for Schools

Children these days spend a lot of time indoors - most of which is in front of the television or computer. During school hours they are also inside the classroom, unable to experience the world outside. This has become an issue for many schools and nurseries who have chosen to take action in the form of school shelters to create an outdoor learning environment.

Year Round Usage

The British weather is often blamed for the lengthy hours children spend indoors, with days and sometimes even weeks going by when they aren't able to make the most of the fresh air outside. Shade outdoor shelters for schools can be used throughout the year, offering protection from the sun's harmful UV rays and also the rain when things turn a bit gloomy.


Learning and Play

Often a change of scenery alone can boost the attention span of children together with their motivation for learning. Lessons that incorporate a more hands-on approach from students in the form of actions and movements can improve the physical health of students. It will also help them grow to respect the environment and develop an overall positive attitude to learning so that they can make the most out of their education.

A covered outdoor area will not only provide children with a sheltered space to learn but another place where they can play and enjoy their lunch with their fellow pupils too.

Being outside also allows children to observe the wondrous changes of nature, from colours and temperature to the different seasons. It enables children to sharpen various skills such as listening and touch when exposed to different elements that they don't usually come into contact with in the classroom.

This unique ability to explore their natural surroundings helps them question different things and broaden their way of thinking.

Mood Adjustment

Being outdoors can also have a dramatic effect on one's mood. This is particularly beneficial in that it can help children feel more at ease and willing to undertake challenges.
