Drawing itself upon the three characteristics of effective learning the course offers a good mix of contemporary research findings, fun activities, illuminating play observations, and opportunities for practitioner reflection to help bring learning to life. This highly sensory session will show inspiring techniques for delivering the curriculum in a fun and inclusive way to achieve a balance between adult-initiated and child-led learning and play.
