LC19-31A Playful Learning and the Curriculum (4 workshops)

Playful Learning and the Curriculum


Interested in finding out about playful learning experiences for teaching language and maths? If so, then register for these lively Workshops, which have been developed by the Education Support Centres Ireland (ESCI) in collaboration with the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA).  

The Workshops link with the Primary Language Curriculum, which emphasises the importance of playful learning experiences for all children. They provide ideas for developing young children’s oral language and emergent writing, as well as mathematical learning, in a playful way. This is a great way to get started in thinking about play and appropriately playful learning experiences. 

This course draws on the key ideas in Aistear: the Early Childhood Curriculum Framework(2009) and provides lots of practical ideas for using these in your infant classroom. Take a look at other teachers’ resources for play and find out how they plan for, resource, support and assess learning through child-led play. You will also hear about a variety of resources available on the NCCA’s website.

This course consists of four 2 hour workshops (7p.m.-9p.m.) on the following dates:

Week 1: Thursday October 10th 

Week 2: Thursday October 17th

Week 3: Tuesday October 22nd

Week 4: Thursday November 7th
