I WISH FOR RISKY PLAY

June 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

£30.00

INSTEAD OF SAYING, “BE CAREFUL”,


Let’s try consider another way – join us as we explore risky, challenging, adventurous play at Beatle Woods Outdoor

Nursery and focus on;
Risk-benefit assessment
Developmentally appropriate risk
Our own Beliefs & attitudes
Benefits of taking risks

Take part in forest school activities and enjoy a morning in the outdoors as we refresh you knowledge, confidence and attitudes towards risky play. Let us enable you to consider your own settings unique approach and philosophy to Risky Play and design policies, procedures, rules and practice that improve outcomes for children.

We know Risky Play and Physical Development is high on Ofsted’s agenda, with headlines in Nursery World reporting, “Nurseries must not shy away from letting children take risks’.‘…we are creating overly risk-free environments. ’Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman, and most recently, Gill Jones, Ofsted deputy director, explaining; ‘When I go and visit settings, which are lovely, sometimes I do wonder how much children are encouraged to be physically active, because they are so safe. I think there is a tension between physical activity and being safe.’

With the next thematic survey and research promised to be on Risky Play and Physical Development, settings have to make certain they are allowing children to take risks and be physically active whilst ensuring safeguarding measures are in place.

 

BOOKING INFO: WEDNESDAY 27 JUNE 9.00-12.00PM. £30 PER PERSON. REFRESHMENTS, CERTIFCATES OF ATTENDANCE.
