Breaking Into The Playground
In Breaking Into The Playground, Carol Murdoch shares a host of ideas and resources that will help you break out of the classroom and into the playground. There are ideas covering every subject area for children aged 3 to 12 years old.
Carol is a teacher and an educational consultant. She believes the curriculum can and should be delivered outside and it can even reduce a teachers workload! There are lots of STEM ideas, engaging activities and reasons for you to get outside. Carol delves into the theory and policy supporting outdoor learning and delivers it in a simple manner, as one reader suggests, it is like having a cuppa with a good friend while exploring the world of outdoor learning.
This is an easy to pick up reference book filled with activities and photographs that are easy to dip into and low on resources and ideas to help you get outside today. What is more exciting is that you do not need green space, much of this can be delivered in concrete playgrounds – there is even a chapter on the Concrete Jungle!
Topics covered include every curricular area to gardening, kit required (which fits inside a backpack), risk assessing, a calendar for the year and more!
Breaking Into The Playground is suitable for early years and primary level educators (3-12 years old) who are ready to break out and make the most of their outdoor space!
