Outdoor Timber Classrooms

Over the years we have supplied many schools and similar organisations with a wide range of buildings and equipment, here David Coton explains how a change of scene can beneficially affect our children's education.

M&M Timber Outdoor Classroom

It's fair to say that teachers are always seeking to improve their students' learning environment, as where you are taught can greatly affect what you learn.

If lessons take place throughout the year in the same familiar surroundings, the routine can become monotonous. However, change the classroom and the chances are that students will respond to this new stimulus.

Once their attention increases, learning will follow suit. And with more engagement from the children, teachers will also be re-energised and lessons gain in impetus. 

This is where a classroom located outdoors can be very effective. Particularly as the weather warms and we move into the summer months when children naturally want to be outside.

Outdoor Learning

An M&M Outdoor Wooden School Classroom is the perfect solution. These are spacious structures that offer a fresh learning experience away from the confines of the schoolroom and also enhance the landscape.

The dimensions are generous, 6m x 4m, 8m x 6m or 12m x 6m, so the children won't be cramped and bespoke designs are available if you have special requirements. 

Manufactured in the UK, the classroom will be delivered and installed following a site visit. The timber is from FSC managed forests that has been kiln dried for extended life, and there is the choice between a thatched or timber roof. 

Alternatively there are other very suitable buildings from the same manufacturer and one of our best sellers is the Large Kalahari Oval Pavilion. A marvellous open plan structure measuring 7m x 5m that, with seating around the periphery, can be wonderful place to teach.
