It’s Nature Month!

01 June 2018


Have you noticed? Apart from the odd torrential downpour, thunderstorm and, in some parts, hailstorms… IT’S SUMMER!!! And that means even more opportunity to get outside and learn in the great outdoors!

Throughout the whole of June, here at Playforce, we’re focusing on the natural environment… and we’re calling it Nature Month!

We’ll be sharing some of our favourite case studies and examples of schools and settings that have introduced learning about the natural environment, into their play areas. And don’t worry… these aren’t all going to be big, beautiful woodland playschemes… some of them are in urban settings and make the most of the smallest spaces.

We’ll also be sharing some tips and ideas, drawn from across our network (and the Internet) of learning ideas and resources. Everything from lesson plans to challenges and competitions.

Of course, it wouldn’t be one of Playforce’s ‘feature months’ without exciting product news and we’ll be announcing… very, very soon… some creepy crawly, scrabbly squirmy new products to encourage every child outside, into nature!

Something we’re really excited about, however, is demonstrating our commitment to the natural environment, as well as talking about it. That’s why we’ve got two fantastic initiatives coming up for Nature Month that give something back to the wider community. One of them is still under wraps… so watch this space… but the other we need your help with TODAY!

Join our campaign to help the natural environment

We think the best way to understand the natural environment is to get out there and DO MORE! That’s why we’ve partnered with DoNation to create a campaign where you can pledge to ‘do’ things, over June (and July and for longer, if you want) that will help the natural environment. This might mean switching to drinking tap water, rather than bottled… composting your food waste at home… buying only locally sourced, seasonal vegetables… even growing your own vegetables. 

You can join in with our campaign (and get everyone at your school involved too) by clicking here. You can set up a profile and see how you’re contributing to the whole campaign.


We’re on a mission to get 100 pledges as part of this campaign… so how are you going to help? Come on… join in Nature Month!

We’ll be featuring some of the most active ‘pledgers’ and we’d love to see some photos of your activities on our Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram.
