Join us for a twilight session where we will explore the delights of campfire cooking, exploring ingredients and recipes, and how you can utilise this safey within your setting.
Kierna has built a reputation as a risk taking, pioneering early years teacher, and through her enormously popular blog, No Such Thing as Bad Weather, has reached thousands of schools and settings across the world. Her approach to outdoor learning and play is focused firmly on the benefits to children and her planning always begins with 'how will this help this child develop and learn?'.
Since 2006 Kierna has transformed her own class's outdoor play space into a haven of exploration, challenge and generosity - generosity of resources, of time and of attitude. It has been visited by teachers and pedagogues from the UK, Europe and beyond and Kierna's authoritative voice is regularly called upon to contribute to outdoor issues in the media. Her unique insights and spirit of innovation are grounded in an abiding belief in the transformative qualities of the natural world, but also reflect the practicalities of delivering the curriculum on a daily basis.
Strong and respectful relationships with parents are vital in order to ensure the outdoors is valued by all the adults in each child's life and study tours to settings in places as diverse as Iceland and Poland has enabled Kierna to enrich her own understanding of what outdoors can offer young children.
