    Outdoor Learning: Maths in the Early Years – Juliet Robertson

    Outdoor Learning: Maths in the Early Years – Juliet Robertson

    Juliet Robertson is an educational consultant who specialises in outdoor learning and play, and in a former life she was the head teacher of three schools ranging in size from 6 to 277 pupils. Juliet is based in Scotland, UK and has worked at a national level since 2008 writing case studies, documents, and doing behind the scenes work to help shape strategy and support for schools and early years establishments. Juliet is in heavy demand world-wide for her practical training. She is also the author of two award-winning and best-selling books: Dirty Teaching: A Beginner's Guide to Learning Outdoors and Messy Maths: An Outdoor, Playful Approach for Early Years.



    In this podcast, she talks with Sarah Gilmore about embedding maths concepts and skills into daily learning experiences and conversations through outdoor experiences in the Early Years. Through her work, Juliet has found that when children have opportunities to play with loose parts, their creativity, imagination and ability to problem-solve becomes evident, particularly outside. Juliet introduces and discusses the "5 R's" and explains how anyone, no matter what their outdoor space looks like, can make the most of the benefits of outdoor learning for younger children.
