The students from Kindergarten up to the 8th grade have all spent an English lesson outside reading books. Reading a book in nature may be no shiny, adventurous endeavour, however, its truly relaxing charm provides us with an authentic enjoyment. The students reported that reading outside is very relaxing, peaceful and that it is easier for them to focus. They also enjoyed spending a lesson outside in the fresh air. Their thoughts have been collected on a ‘reflection tree’ in the school hallway. The students and their parents can continue reading under the treetops in different locations in Ljubljana and Slovenia.
