Replied to The anti-cottonwool schools where kids stare down risk in favour of nature play by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (Read Write Collect)

This article from the ABC discusses a couple of schools in Western Australia that have reduced the rules on outdoor play. THis reminds me of Narissa Leung’s use of old bricks and Adrian Camm’s use of odd material to enage with play.

 

The school has just three rules — no stacking milk creates, no walking on the large wooden spools and no tying rope to yourself.

That is pretty much how our playground at Banton works. We do stack crates though;-)
