A Year Outdoors: All About Effective Outdoor Learning – Wolverhampton

Course description

From making dens and flying kites, to constructing enormous waterways; we know that children thrive in the outdoors across the whole year! A well-planned outdoor area is a powerful learning environment for young children, and should provide opportunities where they can develop and apply their existing skills and knowledge across all areas of the curriculum.

Drawing on examples of outstanding practice, this inspiring and practical course will enable you to optimise the quality of learning in the early years within your outside environment; gaining a clearer understanding of how the characteristics of effective learning and critical skills such as language for thinking, literacy, and maths can be effectively embedded and extended.
