The Outdoor Classroom in Practice, Ages 3-7: A Month-by-Month Guide to Forest School Provision
Drawing on forest school practices, this book provides comprehensive guidance on how the outdoor environment can be used to teach and challenge children across a range of settings. Following a month-by-month format, each chapter provides an assortment 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. Includes detailed information on the role of the adult, planning and using children’s interests to guide their learning and development, and practical ideas that can be adapted to suit each individual child’s needs. Examples come directly from thriving forest schools, located mainly in England.
