  1. My own weekly walks and how they evolved following my visit to Sweden; how we organise ourselves; how we involve parent/carers; how we do observations; how we interact with the children; how we relate these activities to the Stepping Stones and ELGs in the Curriculum Guidance. All illustrated with photos of children I work with.

  2. How we organise and plan our combined indoor and outdoor environments; how we plan for continuous provision; how we teach children to access both environments spontaneously; how we interact with children inside and outside; how we do observations. Illustrated with photos of children at play.

  3. How I got funding to go to Denmark and Sweden to look at outdoor play provision for 3-5 year olds; what I saw in Sweden; how they organised themselves; what their philosophy is; and the impact of my visit on my own practice.

  4. How we can teach education for sustainability to our youngest children (2-6 year olds); how to save water; how to plant and nurture growth; how to learn about the features of our environment; how to protect our environment and begin to understand our mutual interdependence.
