We, adults and children, all need our senses inspired and invigorated in order to be really imaginative – and there’s probably no better stimulation in the world than SNOW!! Suddenly play fights, sculptures and snow angels appear from nowhere.
My daughter is 32 … down came the snow and out went Meg with our previously packed away Christmas polar bear to look at the new world from his point of view. Her images made me smile and want to share them with you.
All types of play can strengthen your academic and personal learning and many schools have Play Policies to ensure that every adult promotes play throughout the school. Watercliffe Meadow primary school in Sheffield (one of our Golden Schools that I am always going on about!!) has it’s own policy and I quote from it … “social times, outdoor play and extended school hours activities are planned by staff at Watercliffe Meadow to provide a wide variety of experience and opportunities for children to explore their unique qualities, skills, gift and talents and to develop all their intelligences …”
Because I love Watercliffe Meadow – together we are opening up a 2 day course where anybody can come and work with me, their wonderful staff and sparkly children. There are just a few places left on this training – we can’t wait to show you how the model works! Phone 01225 767157 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place.
