This is a unique book that supports the current thinking behind outdoor learning. It features over 40 ideas for outdoor activities that support PSRN (problem solving, reasoning and numeracy) in the early years. All the ideas are tried and tested by Terry and this book will prove to be popular in the early years and well into Key stage 1.
This Little Book demonstrates through 28 super concrete, active, hands-on, tried and tested activities, how you can make popular maths activities using low-cost resources and make them work easily in your outdoor environment…very user-friendly.
