              What is playful learning? What are playful pedagogies? This book introduces, theorises and practically applies these two recently emerging ideas which now underpin the Early Years Foundation Stage and, increasingly, Key Stage 1 classrooms. By offering accessible insights into key... theories as well as numerous ideas for practical application in classroom or early years setting, the authors show how to develop childrena (TM)s a ~playful pedagogiesa (TM) in the classroom whilst still implementing curricula requirements. In both indoor and outdoor settings, the book explores a ~open-ended role playa (TM), (or a ~the whatever you want it to be placea (TM)) and illustrates how themes in childrena (TM)s play reflect their interests, their experiences, their knowledge gained at home and their cultural heritage. By showing how children become familiar and skilful within open-ended play environments, the authors have seen childrena (TM)s co-operative skills develop over time as they become connected communities of learners The book also shows just how interested parents can become involed in playful learning. Parentsa (TM) knowledge and understanding, alongside that of the educatorsa (TM), helps to build a bridge between home and school that makes playful learning a universally understood experience by all adults involved with the child. This book is co-authored by a play scholar who has been researching play and learning for many years and by an early years teacher who has been working to develop his own ideas about playful learning and playful pedagogies over several years. Supported by a wealth of case study material that has emerged over their years of observing children learning and playing together, this book will be of interest to students of early years education, early years practitioners, and researchers.
