Event description
This course is aimed at practitioners working with 3 and 4 year olds who wish to improve their knowledge of how to provide fun, exciting and playful experiences which inspire lifelong learning.

This course will look at the power of play and how essential it is for embedding learning and deepening understanding. Each session will explore practical play ideas which provoke curiosity, playfulness, awe and wonder in order to promote characteristics of effective learning.

Session 1: In this session we will look at children’s sense of belonging and how we can support children to settle in through genuine relationships and promoting positive sense of self.
Session 2: In this session we explore provocations for learning and how we provide children with the opportunities for deeper learning through resources that feed their vivid imagination and widen their life experiences
Session 3: In this session we will focus on how we utilise the environment and our role as the teacher in order to support children’s communication and language skills both indoor and out.
Session 4: Will be a celebration of learning across the year, we will also look at ways in which we can make our own and the children’s learning visible in order to celebrate.

Commitment to attend all sessions is required.
