In Finland winter creates challenges for school yard activities. But it can also be seen as new ways to keep active. Our pupils love the ice slides that winter creates on school yard. However the teachers are not that pleased about them since they also create moments of danger. We have not wanted to deny sliding, but there needs to be a teacher all the time when there is a student in the slides.
When there is more snow action comes naturally. At the end of Janyary students have been able to ski, skate and play with snow.
