Learning outcomes • Explain the innate drive for children to play • Analyse how play is necessary for the development of children • Identify the rights of children in relation to play as detailed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child • Explain how settings meet the right for children to play
  4. 4. • Play is very difficult to define as it is something that is carried out very regularly within the workplace. • Play is an important part of a child's day as it provides them with a number of new experiences. • Play can often be mistaken for being recreational and relaxing, however despite it being a very social activity the children are often very stimulated whilst they are playing. • Play not only supports a child's development but it also supports their learning process. What is play? LO1. Understand the role of play 1.1
  5. 5. Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday LO1. Understand the role of play 1.1 Time: 10 mins Thinking about a week in your setting, how many opportunities during the day are available for children to play?
  6. 6. • There are a number of benefits of play for children, some of which are easy to identify, some which are quite subtle. • Play allows children time to learn and develop their skills further including their physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social skills. http://www.teachers- media.com/videos/learning-and- development#video_title_bar • Note the benefits of play in which you see on the clip The benefits and drive of play LO1. Understand the role of play 1.1
  7. 7. • Play helps to develop a child's imagination. Quite often we see children playing and simulating things that they have seen taking place during a day. For example, a child who plays with the cars may recreate a conversation that they have had in the car on the way to the setting. • Providing children with time to play helps to develop their understanding of the world around them. For example, children who like to dress up and play doctors and nurses are using props that allow them to listen to heart beats, take temperatures and measure height. • Play is open to everyone and is a fantastic way of ensuring that everyone is included. The less academic child may struggle with reading or writing but can create fantastic models with the play dough. The benefits and drive of play? LO1. Understand the role of play [AC 1.1]
  8. 8. Time: 10 mins Look at the picture below. • What skills is the activity helping to develop? Look at the laminated cards List the learning that is taking place through each type of play Make links to SPICE LO1. Understand the role of play [AC 1.2]
  9. 9. Time: 10 mins Look at the picture below. • What benefits would come from the child playing in this scenario? LO1. Understand the role of play [AC 1.2]
  10. 10. • In 1989 leaders from around the world came together to decide on the human rights that every child under the age of 18 years should have. • Once they had all agreed they signed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). • Since this was signed, UNICEF have carried out a lot of work to promote these rights and work for children. https://www.bihr.org.uk/crc- hub?gclid=CJTs9_fotcsCFUORGwodAq0Ksg UN Convention on the Rights of the Child LO2. Understand children's rights in relation to play [AC 2.1]
  11. 11. Time: 30 mins • Carry out further research into the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and the work that UNICEF does. • Produce a leaflet from your findings. • Make a note of your sources. LO2. Understand children's rights in relation to play [AC 2.1] www.ohchr.org/EN/ProfessionalInt erest/Pages/CRC.aspx
  12. 12. • Every child has a right to play and to be stimulated during the days. • Play supports children's educational needs and it opens up a number of opportunities to implement skills in relation to making relationships, developing feelings and growing in confidence. Children’s rights to play LO2. Understand children's rights in relation to play [AC 2.1]
  13. 13. • Depending on the age of the children, settings will accommodate play in different ways. • Whilst children are in a nursery setting they will become used to having clear set areas where different types of play takes place. • Since the implementation of the Early Years Foundation Scheme (EYFS), nurseries have invested a lot of time into ensuring that children have the opportunity to learn and develop their skills through play activities. How do settings accommodate play? LO2. Understand children's rights in relation to play 2.2
  14. 14. Time: 15 mins Think of your last placement list all of the ways in which they met the requirements of the UNCRC share this list with your partner LO2. Understand children's rights in relation to play [AC 2.2]
  15. 15. Can you link these to the 5 aspects of development? Aspects Types of play Social Physical Intellectual Emotional Communication
  16. 16. It is important that the areas of play and development are not restricted as children make the transition to primary school. • In the early classes of school children are still given the opportunity to experience learning through play. • As children move through the stages of school the play opportunities change and become more structured and routine for the children. • Space unfortunately does not allow for the designated area to be set up permanently, however the classroom space is often utilised through more table top activities that can be set up when required. How do settings accommodate play? LO2. Understand children's rights in relation to play [AC 2.2]
  17. 17. Time: Ongoing Collect photographs of different settings with their play activities set up so as to be able to compare the different ages and how play can be accommodated. LO2. Understand children's rights in relation to play [AC 2.2] Age ranges Suitable play activities 0-3 3-5
  18. 18. Summary  We have looked at the role, benefits and drive of play.  We have explored the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.  We have understood how settings meet the right for children to play.

  20. 20. Unit 3.1 Understand the value of play in early years
  21. 21. Time: 5 mins • Thinking back to last lesson, talk to the person beside you and together write a short paragraph that summarises everything that you have learnt about play so far. • Share your paragraph with the rest of the group. Starter Activity
  22. 22. Learning outcomes • Explain the characteristics of • child-initiated play • adult-led play • Identify how children’s play needs and preferences change in relation to their stage of development
  23. 23. • Child-initiated play is an essential part of play that young children need to experience in order to explore the world around them and experiment with new experiences. • Child-initiated play is instigated by the child, this means that they chose what they want to do and what they want to play with. • It is important that we allow children this opportunity so that they can try out new things and a variety of different resources, developing their understanding in the process. Child-initiated play LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.1
  24. 24. • The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) encourages child- initiated play to be taking place as it helps the child’s confidence. • It allows children to try new things in an environment that is safe and secure yet also challenging. • Opportunities for child-initiated play should be both indoors and outdoors so that the child can move freely between the two areas. Child-initiated play and the EYFS LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.1
  25. 25. • Although as the adult in the setting we do not want to interfere with children making their choices and playing with what they chose, we need to be there to interact with the child in the way that they would like us to. • This interaction with the child has to be led by the child and you must listen carefully to their guidance. For example, a child playing in the home corner may appreciate you joining in but you must wait to be told what role in the play that you are taking. If the child does not offer you a role then you must listen carefully so that you can offer an appropriate role. • For example a child playing with the dolls in the home corner may appreciate you offering to be the cook or another family member in the play scenario. Child-initiated play and the adult LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.1
  26. 26. Time: 10 mins Think about the role of the adult in child-initiated play. What would you have to do to support this type of play taking place? Key things to think about: • What would you need to do before the day begins? • What would you need to do during the day? • What would you need to do at the end of the day? Use examples from your own placements to support you to complete this question. LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.1
  27. 27. As the adult in the setting it is our role to: • Ensure that the areas in the setting are clearly defined • Clearly label the resources and store them at child's height so that they can be accessed with ease • Keep the resources clean and up to date and replace them when necessary • Have discussions with the children to see what they would like to have available • Consider health and safety, such as signs if areas are limited to how many children can use them at once. • Monitor and observe the play taking place so that areas can be changed regularly when they are no longer being used. Child-initiated play and the adult LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.1
  28. 28. Time: 10 mins Think back to your last day in placement. • Did you support child-initiated play so that it could take place? • Did you do the things that have been discussed? If so, what did you do? • Is there anything you did not do that you think you would do next time? LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.1
  29. 29. • Adult-led play is also an essential part of play and holds a very important place within the child's day. • The difference with adult-led play is that there is an adult present who is offering support and direction to the children. • Although this type of play is often carried out so as to achieve a specific outcome it can still accommodate children’s independent thinking. • For example, the children may be creating cards for an occasion. The adult would lead by explaining that they will be making a card and showing them how to do this, but the children can choose the colours and how they decorate the card. Adult-led play LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development [AC 3.1]
  30. 30. • Adult-led play should be planned and the resources should be ready for the children to use. • Careful consideration should have gone into health and safety and the risks involved in the activity, and appropriate provision put into place so as to ensure that the activity is safe. Adult-led play LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development [AC 3.1] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yC2IrZTd4 t0&list=PLdeekopL3RezE7l104PptsGSNUK6kU9 uA
  31. 31. Time: 30 mins Complete the table on the worksheet provided, comparing the different characteristics of child-initiated and adult-led play. LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development [AC 3.1]
  32. 32. • As you observe children in a setting you will notice how their needs and preferences change as they grow and develop. • It is then that you need to be aware of new interests and make sure that the play opportunities that are provided for the children suit their level of development and their learning. How children's play needs change in relation to their stage of development LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.2
  33. 33. Time: 5 mins Think about a baby (birth–18 months), toddler (18 months–3 years) and a young child (3–6 years). In pairs, decide which toys would be suitable for each age range from the list below. • Train and train track • Soft activity cube • Wooden blocks • Activity gym • Musical instruments LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development [AC 3.1] • Paints • Wrist and feet rattles • Ride-on toys • Dressing up clothes. (2)
  34. 34. Along with the play needs of the child changing the adult’s role also alters to accommodate this. The table below shows a basic outline of how the adult can support the child’s play as they develop. How children's play needs change in relation to their stage of development Babies Toddlers Young children The adult needs to provide an environment where the baby can explore safely and develop knowledge of new places, textures and materials. The adult needs to provide an environment that allows the child to take risks safely, explore a variety of new ideas, try different types of play and allow children to start to develop their social skills. The adult needs to provide an environment that is safe, has opportunities for new experiences such as pretend play with enough space to move around in a safe way and chose what they would like to do. LO3. Understand play at different stages of children’s development 3.2
  35. 35. Summary  We have explored the characteristics of child-initiated play and adult-led play.  how children’s play needs and preferences change in relation to their stage of development
  36. 36. Summary: plenary activities 1. Complete the sentences: a. Child-initiated play is… b. Adult-led play is… 2. List two ways in which a child’s play needs change as they develop. 3. Is the following statement true or false? ‘The adult’s role in supporting children's play is to tell them what they should be doing and guide them through playing with set toys and activities.’

  40. 40. There are many benefits to children playing: • Play allows children time to explore the world around them and allows them to engage in new and different activities. • Play helps children to develop in other areas such as their physical and fine motor skills. • Play allows children to take risks that they may not take normally. As we explore four different types of play, take some notes so that we can put together a play booklet by the end of the lesson. The benefits of play LO4.

  47. 47. Time: 30 mins Put together an information booklet on ‘The benefits of play’ using the information that we have covered this lesson, along with some further research of your own. Your booklet must contain: • A page each for physical, creative, imaginative and sensory play • A short description of what the type of play is • The benefits of each type of play • Examples of each type of play that you do in placement • A list of resources and things to consider with each type of play • At least two quotes to support your work with a bibliography. LO4. Understand different types of play for all children [AC 4.1]
  48. 48. • Heuristic play is when children are given the opportunity to explore everyday objects and items in a safe, secure and supportive environment. • Heuristic play allows children to make choices and get excited about discovering new ways of using items along with the properties of different objects. • Settings often have a ‘Treasure Basket’ that contains a number of items that are available for children to play with in an heuristic way. Heuristic play LO4. Understand different types of play for all children [AC 4.2]
  49. 49. • The equipment that is used during an heuristic play session is very important as this allows children to explore new objects. • There should be a variety of everyday items available for the children that are made out of a range of different materials. • For example, pots and pans of different sizes and shapes, cooking utensils such as wooden spoons or silicone whisks, items from the laundry or the bedroom such as hair brushes or combs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0QpDgUdP_Q The type of equipment used in heuristic play LO4. Understand different types of play for all children [AC 4.2]
  50. 50. • This may be a slightly different role to ones that you have taken before. • In an heuristic play session you will need to provide the equipment and the safe space but then step away and allow the children to play in whatever way that they feel they would like to. • You need to be far enough away to allow them to explore but close enough to observe so that you can intervene and redirect children if required. The role of the adult in heuristic play LO4. Understand different types of play for all children [AC 4.2]
  51. 51. Time: 10 mins This, to us, is simply a set of kitchen utensils. • What could a child use these for during a heuristic play session? • What would they learn from playing with them? LO4. Understand different types of play for all children [AC 4.2]
