Transition in to Year 1 and Beyond: the power of play based learning

Underpinned by a wealth of Doctoral and Masters level research, planned and delivered by our expert EYFS team, this session is designed to demonstrate the power of learning through play.

Although focused on the transition children make from Reception to Year 1, and the need to maintain play-based learning opportunities throughout Year 1, this session is aimed at all teachers and leaders across the primary phase. Whether you choose the full or half-day session, there will be a wealth of transferable information that can be applied in classrooms from the EYFS through to Year 6.

The session offers two packages:

Option 1: Learning Through Play LIVE | half day | free

A chance to observe a Year 1 transition lesson in action, followed by a Q&A session, ‘Top Tips to Take Away’ and a taught 1-hour session on the theory and research underpinning our new approach to play-based learning.

Option 2: Learning Through Play Practical and Theory | full day | £60pp

Option 1, plus taught sessions planned and delivered by our EYFS team. These sessions include ‘Implementing play-based learning beyond the Year 1 classroom’, ‘The benefits of learning through play’, ‘The EYFS and Year 1 together – preparing children for their primary school journey’
