Keywords:collaboration, primary-school, outdoor, education, parents
The present brief study is based on the issue of planning and practicing outdoor education in primary school. We have enhanced the role of adults in planning, wich means projecting and preparing space, time and resources. Also we have underlined the aspect of including parents in all aspects, starting from the planning phase and also to be actively present in the practicing part. In the second part of the article, we have included a research, about the role of adults in outdoor learning activities in primary school. In this matter, we are going to present the results of a focus group, organised both with parents and teachers from a primary school in Arad County. The preliminary results show the fact that parents expect better communication from teachers in order to get better prepared and involved in the aoutdoor activities of their children.
