Much has happened since my last post – more successful play-based, inclusive, affordable residentials have happened with fantastic feedback from the children. Shakespeare Primary (featured in my previous post) have again had some great days out.
As my days with a local authority inclusion project are reducing to just a couple a month I am looking to develop my out door work further. This is happening alongside an increasing interest in the value of play for children especially across the primary age range. This has lead to a great deal of reading and research. I am looking forward to developing this interest, writing for outdoor publications and running workshops. I aim to continue the good work that others are doing to tackle the risk-averse culture that still pervades some schools when it comes to allowing children the freedom to play on wild areas. within widely drawn boundaries.
I will now try to update this website more often – please visit again!
