Alistair Bryce-Clegg

Name of Workshop

Massive spider in the sink! The joys of child-led learning

Who is it for

All practitioners, but a particular focus on Early Years

Brief synopsis of workshop:

High levels of wellbeing lead to high levels of engagement. When children are engaged in their learning, then there is the highest potential for attainment. If we can take learning into play rather than take children out of play to learn then they are far more likely to achieve.

In this session Alistair will unpick the concept of child led learning in the Early Years. He will use real examples of practice from a variety of the settings that he has worked with to support and illustrate the concept.

What you will get out of it:

An opportunity to reflect on your current practice

Information about the positive impact of child led learning on wellbeing and attainment

Practical strategies for how to manage a child led approach

Ideas and examples of successful child led learning
