Block Play Through a Mathematical Lens

March 8 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm GMT


Stronger Practice Hub Event

Block Play is a fundamental and integral part of early childhood education. So open-ended and full of endless possibilities!

This will be a first-hand, hands-on, experiential session with opportunities to playfully explore Block Play.

Children’s collaborative, creative constructions offer such a vivid window onto all aspects of their learning – here we will be looking at Block Play through a specifically “mathematical lens”.

We will reflect together on how to create enriched and enlivened Block Play spaces; how to support children’s learning trajectories as they journey through the 7 stages of Block Play; and, how to observe and scaffold the huge range of mathematical and spatial skills children demonstrate whilst filling and fitting, making and modelling, reproducing and representing with Blocks.

This session is being delivered by trainer Robin Taylor. Robin is Assistant Head at St. Pauls Nursery School and a Local Specialist Leader for Maths in the EYs.

This training is for early years practitioners and leaders working in settings or childminders in our Stronger Practice Hub area (Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon, Wiltshire, Somerset, North Somerset, Gloucestershire, South Gloucestershire). We will also prioritise settings and childminders in areas of deprivation.
