Publisher's Summary:
Learning outside the classroom is an essential part of early years education, and this book looks at the opportunities the Forest School experience can offer young children for learning outdoors, and how this fits into the early years curriculum. By offering clear guidance on what the Forest School approach can achieve, the book shows you how to incorporate good practice into all outdoor play activities. Issues examined include: what is, and what isn't, a Forest School experience; how exercise, fresh air and learning outside help counter obesity; how Forest School can improve behaviour and social skills; accommodating different learning styles; and, examples of Forest School in practice. This is an inspirational read for anyone working in early years education, and for all those who care about the future of our young children and the world in which they are growing up.
