9780415729055: The Outdoor Classroom in Practice, Ages 3–7: A month-by-month guide to forest school provision

The outdoor environment is now an integral part of many early years settings and schools, but is it being used to its full potential?

Providing extensive, challenging and ever-changing outdoor play experiences is an essential and valuable aspect of early years education. This book offers comprehensive guidance on how the outdoor environment can be used to teach and challenge all children across a range of settings drawing on forest school practice.

Following a month-by-month format, each chapter provides a selection of theme-related play experiences alongside planning and evaluations of how the ideas described were carried out, and reveals the impact that they had on the children. Including detailed information on the role of the adult, the environment, planning and using children’s interests to guide their learning and development, the book features:

    • over 100 full-colour photographs to illustrate practice
    • diary entries that reflect how the planning was delivered, what changes were made and how aspects of learning were recorded and assessed
    • examples of practice as well as comprehensive resource lists and safety guidelines
    • links to indoor play and opportunities at home.

Written by a leading authority on forest school practice and full of practical ideas that can be adapted to suit individual children’s needs, this book aims to inspire practitioners to make the most of the outdoor environment throughout the year.
