Description

The Power of Play: How to ensure challenge and progression through play and practical experience

Children need and deserve to learn through rich, varied and imaginative experiences, which challenge their thinking, encourage the highest levels of motivation and engagement and enable them to consistently demonstrate and develop characteristics of effective learning.

Child initiated learning provides a well-researched and highly effective way of doing this. However in order to ensure challenge and progression, the role of the adult is crucial in providing an enabling environment and appropriate support for children as they access this.

Kym Scott, co-author of the best-selling book on learning environments ‘A Place to Learn’, will guide participants through how to provide all of the above during this exciting course. She will highlight numerous ways of improving progress in all areas of learning and development through tuning into how children learn best, their passions and preoccupations, and providing resources and adult interactions that support this.

Examples of inspiring practice from early years classrooms and settings will be used to illustrate rich and challenging play based experiences, indoors and out.

The course will:

- Share the latest research around the characteristics of learning and the key role of play within these

- Consider the key role of the adult in sensitively supporting children’s self- initiated play

- Explore how to develop the learning environment indoors and outdoors so that it maximises the potential for learning at the highest levels.

Target audience: early years practitioners, P1/2 teachers, senior leaders, teaching assistants, subject leaders, education consultants, anyone interested in play-based pedagogy in early years (3-7yrs).

Plenty of free parking. Lifts available from Falkirk Station to venue on Saturday a.m. (contact info@upstart.scot).
