Exploratory Play

I mentor two practitioners for the Foundation Degree and they have just been given a topic to research for a timed assignment in two weeks time -

 

"The essay will involve critical analysis of exploratory play in relation to learning and development in EACH of the age ranges 0-3yrs, 3-5 yrs and 5-7 yrs."

 

I've got a general idea about what I'll discuss with them but would welcome anyone else's ideas, especially in relation to theorists on exploratory play and the 5-7 age range in particular.

 

Thank you! :o

I hope this helps, I'm just doing (should be doing) a literature review at the moment on Play and Exploration. :o

There's also an interesting chapter 'Play and Exploration' in Santer, J,. Griffiths, C and Goodall, D (2007) Free Play in Early Childhood London: National Children's Bureau Enterprises Ltd.

Hi deborah and welcome to the forum. I always find it useful to gather as much information together as a starting point, making notes as I go along. Then when I have a reasonable amount of information I start to type it up - not necessarily in any sort of order, but more just getting ideas down on paper. As I do this things start to fit together and by moving my paragraphs around and changing the wording the essay suddenly seems to take shape. :o

 

Sorry, I don't have any specific advice on this topic though. xD

Just wanted to welcome you to the forum Deborah! :o My "mentees" found the two references in the thread very useful and have also used a lot of material from the EYFS pack and CD Rom.
