Outdoor learning and play experiences are an essential part of young children’s development. The importance of offering children first-hand experience of the natural world becomes more urgent as research evidence demonstrates the benefits of becoming physically and emotionally involved with the natural world. Outdoor Learning through the Seasons shows how we can encourage young children to engage with nature on a daily basis throughout the year. Using the four seasons as a framework, it supports adults to develop their own awareness of the world around them .and feel confident about taking children outside every day. There are suggestions for caring for gardens and wildlife through the year, and ideas to brighten grey winter days, enjoy the summer sunshine or explore in the snow. Now featuring full colour photographs throughout, this new edition has been updated to include references to recent research, new material on Forest Schools, discussion questions for practitioners and in-depth case studies of learning in action. Features include: Ideas for all seasons, weather conditions and working with the four elements: earth, air, water and fire Guidance on fulfilling the learning requirements of EYFS and the Characteristics of Effective Learning Advice on working with parents and the role of adults Practical tips and suggestions of how to make the most of a small space or how to re-plan an existing space Useful reference lists of further resources including stories, poems and websites This practical book is essential reading for all those looking to provide rich and stimulating outdoor learning and play provision for children in early years settings on a daily basis and for parents and carers wishing to get the most of time outdoors with their children.

Told from the perspective of a shaman healer, this unique anthology reinvents old stories and creates new ones designed to guide and inspire readers in their own personal spiritual quests. In the manner of old-time teachings, ancient wisdom is revealed through poetry and fairy tales. In this telling, Cinderella, here named Ashera for the cooking ashes, chooses not to marry her prince and instead becomes an apprentice to a powerful healer. The poem, Gifts, offers an insightful perspective on mystical thinking. Like a kaleidoscope coming into focus, each entry reveals layer upon layer of depth. Some of the stories are lighthearted and fun while others are darker and more serious, yet all are thoroughly entertaining. This book is truly a delightful journey into the magical world of the hero/heroine with its potential for healing, wholeness, and adventure.
