This two-part course will help practitioners to find out about how they can have the maximum impact on children’s learning during their self-initiated play.
It will provide a deeper understanding of what high-quality teaching in child initiated learning (CIL) looks like. Practitioners will explore the 'play cycle' and its impact on children's learning and development.
By attending this course, participants will:
- gain an awareness of the 'play cycle' and what this looks like in practice
- develop an understanding of how to effectively guide and challenge children's learning during CIL
- engage in practical activities that can be applied in the classroom
- take part in a gap task around developing the adult role during CIL
Delegates should bring evidence of their gap task to part 2.
