:o Hi this is my first time writing on here so I hope I do this right! I have been teaching for 3 years and I am particularly interested in outdoor provision after seeing the benefit to children's development and behaviour. I want to set up a page where people can share and exchange sparkling ideas regarding this area of provision! Does anyone know how I can do this? Happy holidays everyone!

Welcome to the forum Suzi

 

I have just been on the nature detective website downloading some great bramble activities which my class will enjoy when we go back to school.

 

Have fun ,there are lots of ideas for outdoor provision on this forum if you do a little searching

Hi all,

 

My first time on here too, so hope this works! What a great idea to start an outdoors thread - something which I am constantly struggling with and a big area for development for me.

 

Any amazing ideas wold be greatly appreciated.

 

My TA went on a course last week about outdoor learning and this bloke reckoned the kids should be outdoors in the rain with no shoes on, and should be allowed up stepladders with claw hammers....might be taking things a bit too far for my liking!! He did have some good ideas though - tyres, old fabrics, bits of drainpipes, and hoses being cheap and endless in terms of use.

 

Does anyone have any great ideas that are easy to resource and manage?

 

Thanks a lot :o

I would wholeheartedly agree with him on all counts. Perhaps not bre feet if it is snopw and cold but how wonderful for children to feel the wet outdoors throught their feet! I have worked with nursery children using step ladders so they can paint the outside of the nursery shed ( with water brushes!) as for claws and hammers yes yes yes your boys will ove it and so will the girls and I would use saws with logs and branches.

 

Then for adult initiated cook popcorn and get a fire pit from Asda and skillet and cook eggy bread the children will LOVE it!

Agree with Lorna W the boys (and our girls this term) do love hammers and saws. we allow them to climb up step ladders or on chairs 'how else can you mean the roof of a house?'

 

Summer outside in the rain drops, Bring it on please better than this snow!!! would yoiu alloe children to take shoes off for foot painting? pretty much the same thing, just ensure they are safe and risk assessments have been taken.

 

Last week we spent the morning racing car tyres on the patio in the rain the langauge used was fantastic and the PSRN was more than met. The children used tyres and large wooden reels nothing else and we felt nothing else was needed. I have never rolled a tyre as fast and seen the rain wizz up (unless I was driving of course)
