About the Talk
Through this workshop, unpack the key elements of PYP Early Years through the building blocks of relationships, play and environment. Explore and reflect on the best practices for each of these areas and the new normal conditioning and considerations for them. Reflect on your current classroom practices regarding social and emotional aspects of working with children post and mid Covid-19 crisis. Also explore the role of the PYP Coordinator in supporting Early Years educators, parents and learners in the process of understanding, participating in and celebrating play as a way of knowing.
You will come away with an understanding that “all play is purposeful” and “all play matters” and a call to action on how to further your inquiry into symbolic play and hundred languages of children.
