Designing a Nature School Space - Professional Learning Incursion

This workshop is designed to inspire and kick start creativity in establishing a play-based outdoor classroom. Using information from Professor David Sobel on children’s play motifs, educators will play themselves to create models of outdoor learning spaces that support the Early Years Framework. The workshop also explores some of the barriers to learning outside and how risk, organisation and supervision can be reframed to create success in a school or early learning centre environment.
