Also, note that you should alternate double and single quotes. Otherwise you're quoting, "children were given an essay on the theme " and " for homework".
Otherwise it sounds OK to me.
'In (the) nature' is the equivalent in many languages of the English 'in the country/mountains', 'in the great outdoors', 'at the seaside' or some similar expression.
