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 Year 4?
The National Curriculum Outdoors: Year 4 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 Year 4 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
