Summary "Each chapter explores an aspect of the outside that can be brought into children's learning in schools, be they 'Forest school' or inner city. The importance of the outside environment to children's learning and development is argued in theory and convincingly illustrated in practice in these accounts of effective learning outside the classroom. The book is also about allowing children's daily lives into the classroom so that their families and communities contribute to school life, and so that what children learn and experience outside school is recognised and valued within it. This book is for all early years practitioners and will interest trainers in the early years and all who work with young children."--BOOK JACKET.
