Kathryn Solly on Scientific Exploration

In this interview, Kathryn explains how important scientific language is, but how it must be relevant (and correct); the types of resources that are useful
· March 6, 2020

Kathryn Solly has worked across all ages of education, from babies to tertiary including being an Ofsted inspector and a headteacher for Chelsea Open Air Nursery School for 17 years.

She’s now a specialist Early Years consultant, trainer and speaker with a passion for outdoor play, learning and leadership, and she has written a super book which is called Risk, Challenge and Adventure in the Early Years. She’s also a proud parent and grandparent.

In this interview, Kathryn explains how important scientific language is, but how it must be relevant (and correct); the types of resources that are useful – and which you may already have in your setting; and how beneficial it is for practitioners and educators to learn alongside the children as co-constructors of knowledge.
