"Play is the highest form of quality Play is our favourite way of learning It is a happy talent to know how to play."


In the Moment Planning


Brain development and levels of involvement (how these are linked and how they relate to Early Years practice, particularly free-flow play.) How to create an enabling environment to support the interests of each unique child.

Practical ideas for outdoor areas. Using a ‘less is more’ approach to resourcing. A careful look at the observation, assessment, teaching cycle and how this can be condensed into the moments of an interaction. An explanation of what and how to record some of the teaching that occurs during free-flow play (‘planning in the moment’) Story scribing and cooking – two ways to bring literacy and maths into free-flow play.

Delegates will gain knowledge to give them confidence in explaining how children learn through their play and how best to organise this.

They will leave with various (optional) tasks to complete before Day 2, including developing an area of their environment, working on interactions, trialling a new format of paperwork.

They will also gain an introduction to ‘story scribing’ as a powerful way to improve the writing outcomes in their settings, without causing the children any anxiety or stress.
