in General Commentary

For 2011, the most popular posts on my blog were…

1) Stones

Plain or painted they still remain a popular resource. This is the second year of being the most popular post!

2) Big Outdoor Musical Instruments

Bespoke and bought examples from different schools and settings in Scotland along with some practical tips to help you think before you buy.

3) Outdoor Play at Cowgate Under 5’s Centre

An inspirational pre-school centre in the heart of Edinburgh. This is the second year it’s been the 3rd most popular post.

4) Echt School Outdoor Instruments

A rural Aberdeenshire School has created some beautiful big tuned percussion instruments.

5) Recycling books for use outdoors

All your favourite books can be given a new lease of life and survive the weather too.

6) Outdoor Sandpits – ROAR!

This post digs deep into the issues around sand play.

7) Leaf Loving Literacy Activities

Lots of ideas for using leaves for creating group poetry and other talking activities.

8) Creating a Writing-Friendly Outdoor Environment

It can make a difference and it’s a lot more than a bunch of tables…

9) The Fibonacci Sequence and Nature

One of the best mathematical discoveries of all time…

10) Willow Structures in School Grounds

If your climate allows you to grow willow then this versatile plant is a massive “must” for any playspace.

So what will 2012 bring? As yet, who knows! Watch this space.
