Embedding a Play Pedagogy and Learner-Led Approach in Primary 2 and Beyond

Tuesday 1st of February
4pm – 5pm

We continue our sharing practice in Play Pedagogy sessions with another opportunity to hear from practitioners who have embraced play and will share practical tips and suggestions for wherever you are on your play journey.

This session will provide a glimpse into Allan’s Primary School (Stirling) and how they are re-inventing the school experience for their Primary 2 learners. With a focus on Outdoor Learning, regarding their Environment as the third educator and valuing Curiosity Time (learner led experiences), they are harnessing the excellent, play-based practice identified at Early Level and exploring how this may look at the next stage of the school experience.

– Their play pedagogy journey in Primary 1 and 2, considering how they support development of Literacy and
– The professional learning that has underpinned this approach.
