'the book has considerable strengths as a resource for Early Years practitioners, and the staff of a setting could well use it to support the systematic development of their outdoor provision, discussing and using the activities and points for practice incorporated into each chapter'- Valerie Huggins, Early Years
A well-structured easy read - very good introduction to the outdoor classroom and the learning opportunities for young children
This book is presented well and in a similar format we have come to know from Sarah Knight. It is structured clearly and supportive of outdoor play which is underpinned with theory. The risk assessment offers a common sense approach which supports self assessment. Overall a very good practical book with clear examples.
Links well to course content
The perfect text to encourage early years, primary and forest school staff to consider the issue of risk.
This book is clear and concise and offers students advice and ideas regarding how to create risk and adventure in their play experiences outdoors.
This is a well illustrated book that carefully explores the elements of risk in outdoor play. The book includes a chapter on fire, this is a current topic of interest and relates well to Forest School Education. This chapter discusses the role fire plays in learning about the outdoors. This book would support those considering outdoor education or Forest School provision.
A well written text for both students and experienced practitioners.
