More About the Author

Sara Knight is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Anglia Ruskin University, a Forest School level 3 practitioner, and a founder committee member of the Institute for Outdoor Learning Forest School Special Interest Group. Trained as a drama teacher but with gardening grandparents, Sara has found working with children in the early years an excellent way to combine creativity with a love of the outdoors. Sara ran her own nursery class, then worked in a Special School before moving into the FE and HE sectors. Alongside this, she worked with the Green Light Trust in Suffolk, latterly launching Forest School across the eastern region, running her own Forest School sessions and being involved with training. In 2009 she published "Forest Schools and Outdoor Play in the Early Years", and recently publish "Risk and Adventure in Early Years Outdoor Play: learning from Forest School".

Product Description

Review

'the book has considerable strengths as a resource for Early Years practitioners, and the staff of a setting could well use it to support the systematic development of their outdoor provision, discussing and using the activities and points for practice incorporated into each chapter'
- Valerie Huggins, Early Years

'Chapter 8 of this book is one of the most sensible pieces of writing I have read on risk assessment. Very well balanced, clear and concise advice when weighing up the benefits of learning with risk factors involved...The practical advice in this excellent book is underpinned by the latest theory that supports its use, and is further backed by real-life examples. With a further book on Forest Schools in the pipeline, the author is leading by example in the drive to get children and practitioners outdoors, enjoying the many benefits that nature brings' -
Early Years Educator


'I cannot imagine an author more qualified to write about outdoor play in the

early years...a clearly-written, well-structured book that is full of useful suggestions for activities, implications for practice, and sources for further reading. It is recommended in particular to practicing early years educators who would like to –

as the back cover implores us –“incorporate the wilder and riskier elements of outdoor play into their planning”'
-Educational Review


This is a clearly-written, well-structured book that is full of useful suggestions for activities, implications for practice, and sources for further reading. (Simon Beames Educational Review)
