Loose Parts and Transient Resources in Your Outdoor Environment – Outdoor Learning Workshop (South Gloucestershire)

June 11 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm BST


Stronger Practice Hub Event

In these outdoor workshops, we will be networking, reflecting, discussing, learning and exploring hands-on what makes a good outdoor environment. You will leave with plenty of ideas to take back and influence developing the outdoors in your setting.

Using Loose Parts and Transient resources in your Outdoor Environment

In this workshop, we will explore the term and popularity of Loose Parts Play and how it supports children’s fascinations, schema play, learning and development. Children can make sense of the world around them by exploring and investigating things that are current, relevant and interesting to them, as well as using natural resources in transient play.

Being outdoors is a great environment for adventure and imagination, problem solving and theoretical reasoning developing brain connections and promoting awe and wonder from an early age. This will be an opportunity for you to reflect on your own setting practice and consider how to develop it further.

These practical sessions will be delivered outdoors regardless of the weather so please dress appropriately.

Please Note: This training day is for early years practitioners working in settings or childminders in our Stronger Practice Hub area. There are 30 places available and no more than two places per setting. We will prioritise settings and childminders in areas of deprivation. Places will be confirmed two weeks before the event.

If this event is sold out, you can email sph@beyth.co.uk and ask to be added to the reserve list. Please tell us your setting name and postcode.

Unfortunately you are NOT able to bring your children along to these sessions. They are for Early Years practitioners and childminders only.
