Congratulations to Grounds for Learning (Learning through Landscapes in Scotland) Their booklet on Woodland Play clearly sets out the value and benefits of the natural woodland environment on children’s play, learning and development. Although the booklet shares the outcomes from a project with Scottish Primary Schools it has many transferable messages that will resonate with all types of early years settings in England.
As the booklet demonstrates through a great set of images and quotes from staff and children, woodland play can….
nurture creativity and imagination
increase knowledge and skills
develop physical and emotional health
improve behaviour and social skills
and offer endless fun!
This booklet makes great reading and will be an inspiration to anyone seeking to make more use of the natural woodland environment. For further information or to order a copy visit http://www.ltl.org.uk/resources/results.php?id=454
