How to Establish Play in the Infant Classroom 21.2.23 Cancelled

The infant day is extremely busy and finding time to squeeze everything in can be difficult. With constant curriculum pressures on us, how can we possibly allow Play to flourish in our classrooms? This webinar will provide practical advice on how you can set up a purposeful Play environment in your classroom that encourages plenty of learning opportunities while giving the children freedom to explore avenues of creation at their own pace.

Learning Outcomes

  •      Establish a Play sequence that fits within your classroom dynamic.
  •      Recognise the importance of children’s voice during Play and how to promote choice in the classroom.
  •      How to set-up a whole school approach to facilitate for Play.
  •      Identify the role of the adult as fundamental in achieving the most from the Play experience and moving from periphery to participation.
  •      Implement a thematic approach to Play that integrates seamlessly within the infant day.

Facilitator:      Facilitator: Dean Vaughan, and I am a huge advocate for play-based learning. I have a Masters in Education in Aistear and continue to research Play in the primary infant classroom. As an infant teacher myself working at classroom level and with other teachers, I understand the need for practical advice when it comes to learning through and setting up for Play.
