How do we know children are covering the curriculum when they play?

How do we track this coverage and ensure children are learning?

How do I know what I’m looking at when children play?

This workshop will grow and strengthen teacher curriculum knowledge and the application of this in support of play-based learning in the school setting.

Workshop Content

In this workshop, teachers will learn practical strategies to intentionally notice, recognise and respond to the New Zealand Curriculum within a play-based classroom context.  These strategies will include:

  • building wider curriculum knowledge and awareness outside of literacy and numeracy
  • identifying developmentally appropriate responses and support strategies to enrich children’s play opportunities
  • developing key assessment and documentation processes to ensure curriculum coverage
  • begin to understand the link between the notice, recognise, respond approach and play-based learning assessment practices
