About The Webinar
There is now plenty of research that suggests that children need and enjoy playing in natural spaces.
This webinar explores how Nicolson’s Theory of Loose Parts and Gibson’s Affordance Theory can be utilised to create simple changes to your outdoor space, through a participatory approach that involves your children throughout the process.
In doing so, the biodiversity of your outdoor space will be improved and it becomes a better place not just for learning and play but for wildlife too. The emphasis is on sustainable low-cost and doable ideas that don’t involve digging up the asphalt.
After the webinar you will get access to additional resources that help you develop your practice and keep track of what you need to do to develop your outdoor provision.
Develop your outdoor provision! This webinar is aimed at early years and primary teachers.

A well-planned and designed natural play space can provide experiences that:
Improve children’s physical development and enable children to think and play in creative and imaginative ways.
Promote positive physical risk taking within a framework of safety and help children learn more about the natural world and increases children’s knowledge about nature.
Provide a valuable context for developing life skills including literacy and numeracy and create a calmer outdoor space which is more restorative and enables children to better focus.
