Planning celebratory moments with and for children
Planning celebratory moments with and for children by Dr Claire Warden
This Academy Talk will give you insight into how to make celebratory moments inclusive and joyful for all children. This time of year can be stressful for adults and children alike. To limit the stress, Claire will show how using a Talking Tub based around celebrations, can support equality of opportunity, genuine child-led planning and therefore fully inclusive play and learning.
You will be inspired to use a Talking Tub to generate ideas and opportunities for children to express their thoughts and ideas around celebrations and traditions that are particular to them, so that all children's cultural capital is valued. Claire will share tips for selecting images and props to include in an effective Talking Tub.
This Academy Talk includes footage of children exploring a Christmas themed Talking Tub at Auchlone Nature Kindergarten.
By the end of this Academy Talk you'll be able to:
1. Outline how you can use a Talking Tub to embrace diversity, support child-led planning and increase engagement.
2. Describe the practicalities of creating a Talking Tub that will inspire children to share their ideas and develop their higher order thinking skills.
3. Enjoy planning with and for children, so you don't need to provide all the ideas.
