We know that there are real pressures on childhood. We also know that children spend less time with nature and have fewer opportunities to play. Around the world, schools are being called on to to see what they can do to help?
With over 25 years of experience as a teacher, Craig Taylor shows how schools can develop their outdoor learning programmes so that genuine, long-term, sustainable change really can be achieved. But he goes much further than this! He sets out a challenge for teachers to make real changes in the learning experiences they create for children. As he says, "The best outdoor learning does not cost the earth, but it does take some work." And that work is for the teachers themselves to grasp.
Warm and filled with a depth of experience, this book is an absolute must for anyone involved in a school - anyone who can see that, if we really want to make a difference for our children, schools are going to have to be at the forefront of that change.
