In this episode, Kate and Emily talk about the intricacies of place-based work and how that plays into their curriculum planning in their outdoor school. They also talk about the delicate balance between planning your lessons and emergent learning and provide a few lovely examples to highlight their work in this area. I was also keen to ask them about the materials they bring with them on their explorations, and they provide many examples of using open-ended materials to promote and support emergent learning. The heart of their message was asking: “How do we explore mysteries with children? What is the core that is captivating our learners?”
