Planning for Investigative Play

Creative & Critical Thinking in the Early Years

Course Description:
 

This is the beginning of a series of workshops that will address planning for and implementation of Investigative Play in the early years. This modular approach to planning is designed to give teachers the skills and confidence to plan for more challenging and engaging experiences that will encourage children to think more creatively and critically as they play. Whilst the workshops will be connected and will build on previous sessions, it is not essential that teachers attend all of the workshops.

The programme is suitable for Nursery, Foundation Stage and Key Stage One teachers.
