Notice

  • How are the children learning? Which areas of development, engagement and characteristics of learning can you observe?
  • How does the environment support the children’s learning?
  • What is valuable about the materials they find?

Reflect

What are your thoughts about:

  • What areas of learning and development were covered in their play?
  • Did the children have a joint aim?
  • Did they communicate effectively with each other?
  • What effect did the environment have on the children’s play?

Respond

What would you do to:

  • Support the children’s play? How could you encourage their interest in music and bands?
  • What could you do when you return to the setting?

What next:

  • Could you provide more open ended natural materials and resources to support children’s imaginations?
  • What do you know about the Steiner approach to early education? Could you find out more?
