Join Dr Claire Warden, the creator of the Floorbook Approach, in an exploration of genuine inquiry-based learning. Claire has a wealth of experience and knowledge in early childhood education. She's inspired 1,000's of practitioners around the world to use Floorbooks to engage children in their learning. This masterclass will help you make the most of Floorbooks, leave you ready to transform your practice and deliver positive outcomes for children.
By the end of this masterclass you'll be able to:
- Outline the principles and practice of the Floorbook Approach.
- Describe how you would use the Floorbook Approach to empower children.
- Demonstrate this inquiry-based approach to involve children in every aspect of the planning and documentation cycle.
"Having spent the last day reflecting on what I had learned during your masterclass, I felt I was on the 'right track' and now intend to strengthen some areas of our practice e.g. Implementing Floorbooks to take our whole school theme work forward. We will also endeavour to make the children's learning more visible and to capture their progress in a more systematic but realistic way."
