The emergency exit to outdoor learning...
Wonderful Juliet, I think it is fabulous that you are getting to go outside with the same classes on a regular basis, the relationships you are establishing are great. I know when we first went to visit at our local 'special school' I didn't foresee how much their children weer going to gain from observing mine. For the first time these children climbed banks, rolled down them & tried to climb the trees. Peers are the best role models ever.
Oh, those kids are always doing something we did not plan for. How great is that. I think that it is true more so in the outdoors because children explore with their whole bodies. 10 in the bed with the hammock as a bed. That's clever
Thanks for your thoughts. I think it came about because of Fred the Ted being around... there was Ted in the Bed, etc! Peers do have a huge impact - I regularly use older children to work with the younger ones as it benefits both parties. I can't believe the new term begins so soon!
