A practical guide to exploring and extending learning outdoors.
by Kathryn Solly, B.Ed (Hons), M.A, PGCE(SEN), NPQICL
What is the difference between ‘risk’ and ‘danger’? What can children learn from taking risks? How can you provide key experiences for children and ensure their safety outdoors?
This book clearly explains why children should be given the freedom to take risks and provides practical experience on how to offer stimulating and challenging outdoor experiences that will extend all areas of children’s development and learning.
This book is essential reading for both practitioners and students wishing to provide rich experiences for children enabling them to become confident and adventurous learners.
