- Why play and learn outdoors?
- How to mentor/ engage with children’s thinking and play in the natural world – create a culture of mutual trust.

- Well-being and agency – why the two go hand in hand.
- Ways of observing and mentoring children’s play- understand the importance of play in all Key Stages – play for enjoyment, discovery, innovation, creativity.
