What a great manual. This book really is the complete scheme of work it professes to be. It is a positive manual for both teacher and child
For those educators already teaching Forest School, it is packed with ideas and clever links to the curriculum, but it is also a perfect start for those venturing outdoors for the first time. It provides a well-structured scheme of work that is clear and undaunting. I think many of us are wary of outdoor educating for fear that we are not covering the curriculum adequately, or adhering to health and safety regulations sufficiently, but all that is done for you, it's brilliant.
The book is ideal for those who want the entire curriculum prepared for them, but it is also set out in such a way that you can dip in and out, or add some ideas to existing plans.
The book is worded in a very accessible way, relevant and progressive. It is very easy to use and includes all the plans, resources and considerations for each lesson, the entire curriculum is covered for both years 1&2, with ideas for whole class groups, paired and individual activities. This makes it ideal for any educational scenario, whether your school is embracing the entire concept or only running forest school as a voluntary club.
I have already passed on the title to colleagues teaching outdoors and I know it will prove incredibly popular.
The National Curriculum Outdoors is a series of five books, packed full of photocopiable lesson plans for every curriculum subject, clearly linked to the National Curriculum objectives and carefully planned to ensure progression across the key stages, providing a structure for children to learn, create and have fun outdoors.
The full series;
Teaching outside the classroom improves pupils' engagement with learning as well as their health and wellbeing, but how can teachers link curriculum objectives effectively with enjoyable and motivating outdoor learning in Key Stage 1?
The National Curriculum Outdoors: KS1 presents a series of photocopiable lesson plans that address each primary curriculum subject, whilst enriching pupils with the benefits of learning in the natural environment.
Outdoor learning experts Sue Waite, Michelle Roberts and Deborah Lambert provide inspiration for primary teachers to use outdoor contexts as part of their everyday teaching and showcase how headteachers can embed curriculum teaching outside throughout the school, whilst protecting teaching time and maintaining high-quality teaching and performance standards.
All of the Key Stage 1 curriculum lessons have been tried and tested successfully in schools and can be adapted and developed for school grounds and local natural environments.
What's more, each scheme of work in this all-encompassing handbook includes primary curriculum objectives; intended learning outcomes; warm-up and main activities; plenary guidance; natural connections; ICT and PSHE links; and word banks.
These books are a timely and welcome addition to help primary teachers grow their confidence and competence to undertake great teaching - outdoors! -- Juliet Robertson - former headteacher and education consultant specialising in outdoor learning, @CreativeSTAR
Enough to convince even the hardened 'indoor' teacher that the outdoors has much to offer and these books give a step by step introduction of how it can be incorporated into their scheme of work along with their other planning. Overall I have been really impressed with this series. -- Craig Armiger - Blogger, craigarmiger.wordpress.com
