Celebrate Empty Classroom Day – Friday 17th June

Empty Classroom Day is a day to celebrate and inspire learning and play outside the classroom, and we want YOU to get involved! Food Growing Schools: London is supporting this amazing initiative inviting all the schools in London to grow food

Join schools from across the world in taking at least one class outdoors, and then see if you can get the rest of your year group outside or maybe your whole school? This year we are focussing on playtime too, it’s just as important as the rest of the school day!

Check out the resources page for inspirational lesson plans, posters and advice on how to make Empty Classroom Day brilliant and how to sustain outdoor play and learning all year round.

Empty Classroom Day this year is part of a GLOBAL campaign, backed by Persil’s Dirt is Good movement, so there will be loads of opportunities to share not only with schools across the UK, but across the world.

Be part of a movement that gets children outdoors at school every day!

And if you grow food outside on Friday 17th June within Empty Classroom Day initiative, you will be joining also in the Growathon Challenge, a FGSL campaign which aims to get 50000 students growing food in London by the end of Summer 2016.
