4 Reflective activity

Now you have reached the end of Session 2, it’s a good time to reflect on what you have learned so far. In particular, you might like to consider if you have noticed how the outdoor environment is perceived in a certain way for very young children. Remember we are thinking specifically about those children aged birth to two years old. Once again there are some questions below that may help you in your thinking. You can record your thoughts in your Learning journal or in the text box in the activity.

Before you have a go at answering the questions, watch this short video of Tina Bruce describing an observation of a young child outside.
