@_winsdale_ @ClareSealy @EYBrofessional @helenjwc @HarfordSean @Ofstednews My 'provocation' to students on this phrase has always been 'whose plan, and whose purpose, discuss'!
@ClareSealy @Sue_Cowley @helenjwc @EYBrofessional @HarfordSean @Ofstednews The resourcing is adult initiated. I.e. what you have in the setting for continuous provision. What the children then do with it is up to them, and the adults follow their lead. Obviously there will also be other activities that adults lead more directly.
@_winsdale_ @ClareSealy @EYBrofessional @helenjwc @HarfordSean @Ofstednews I think that can be deconstructed. In the EY children’s learning from a particular starting point is often quite diverse and the adult has to have the skill to ‘stay with them’ through SST. No straightforward WALTs here!
@EYBrofessional @helenjwc @ClareSealy @HarfordSean @Ofstednews Yes absolutely and this is also an issue for 7+. School in the past was often extremely regimented but children had a lot of time for associative free play before and after, makes for a much better balanced developmental period.
@ClareSealy @EYBrofessional @helenjwc @HarfordSean @Ofstednews I really would suggest Avril Brook’s chapters in Perspectives on Play on this topic (because they honestly are really informative, not just because I get about 2p for every edition sold!)
