Play! Documenting Play with Children using Floorbooks
Tuesday 4 August @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm£99
A Masterclass with Dr Claire Warden
Join Dr Claire Warden, the creator of the Floorbook Approach, in an exploration of the importance of play and how we can be led by children in documenting play using Floorbooks. Learn about this simple meaningful methodology of planning, documenting, critically reflecting and evidencing children’s play and learning WITH THEM NOT FOR THEM whilst delivering the curriculum.
Claire has a wealth of experience and knowledge in early childhood education. She’s inspired 1,000’s of practitioners around the world to use Floorbooks to give children a voice and increase their engagement. Floorbooks are promoted by Education Scotland, The Care Inspectorate and other governing bodies as good practice.
Objectives. By the end of this masterclass you’ll be able to:
– Outline the place of documentation in the play process.
– Explain the theoretical perspectives of structured play.
– Use child led documentation to empower the child and educators to create effective learning pathways.
– Develop leadership strategies to support a whole centre approach to inquiry-based documentation.
“Such inspiring training! We’d been using Floorbooks in a limited way, but after my light bulb moment in your masterclass, I feel enthused and excited about strengthening our use of them. They have so much potential to make the children’s learning through play more visible, capturing their voices and progress in a more systematic but realistic way.”
