Overview

This day will look at play process and terms such as play frames, play cues, play types, the benefits of risky play and the role of the practitioner.  We will also look at how the practitioner supports play by being on tap but not on top.

The workshop will see participants going away with;

  • An understanding of the characteristics of play and what we can observe in our learners when ‘playing in the woods’
  • An understanding of a nature play cycle
  • Ideas on how to stimulate play and the ‘affordances’ the woods offer and what materials/loose parts can offer regarding play possibilities
  • Understanding of the ‘ludic process’ and how we as educators can support or adulterate play including the types of dialogue involved
  • What attributes educators need when supporting play
  • Many nature based play ‘activities’ to support the play
