  • 1. • Aims for talk: • To show the importance of play on children's health. • Show how children feel towards outdoor play. • Explain why we should change our ways and go outdoors more.
  • 2. • Try not to let bad weather put you off: play doesn’t have to be spoiled by a bit of rain. In fact, kids are usually less worried by a little cold and rain than their parents, especially if they’re running around and keeping warm! • If it’s wet and muddy outside, why not dress them in old clothes and wellies and let them splash around, rather than being couped up indoors?

  • 4. Worried about your child’s health? • As children are starting schools there are lots of different bacteria's coming into contact with children and so quickly bacteria and viruses spread in these environments. • ‘One way to reduce the spread of infection is through lots and lots of fresh air. Outdoor play enables the infectious agents to spread out and be dissipated; it also enables children to get fresh air and exercise and be less constrained than they are in the classroom’ (Aronson, 2002).
