Learning is a life-skill and cannot be confined to classrooms; indeed learning that is so confined is likely to be largely meaningless and useless. This article embraces the value of linking classroom learning meaningfully to out-of-school activity. From a teacher's perspective this may include setting homework, organising visits to museums, fieldwork, industrial/work placements, science clubs etc. Some schools now work with extended hours to help provide services and activities for pupils, families and the wider community. A wide range of activities is considered and particular emphasis is placed on considerations for pupils' well-being and safety and the legal requirements that are in place.
