Wellies and Waterproofs: Innovating Outdoor Learning -Whatever the Weather – Carmountside

Course description

During the autumn and winter months, outdoor areas can sometimes become less frequently visited by adults and children. However, the EYFS sets out an expectation that the outdoor environment is available and used well every day; whatever the time of year and whatever the weather.

With positive attitudes and thinking, the autumn and winter can provide many unique and valuable learning opportunities. This session will showcase a wealth of examples of practice which highlight the benefits of children being outdoors in these seasons. Together we will explore ways to make the most of this time of year, find solutions for constraints and barriers, as well as inspirational ideas!
