I the first episode of this Podcast series Glenn (AKA The Male Practitioner) speaks to Becie Doughty, a Deputy Manager in a York Nursery, about her thoughts on Enabling Environments as she talks through her 5 top tips.
In the second episode of this series Glenn (AKA The Male Practitioner) hears the views on labelling from Rob Fox, practitioner, consultant and trainer from Active Childhood UK. Are we too quick to label a child or should we be giving them more time to process and explore?
So, after a lovely chat with the brilliant James Tunnell from Nursery Nook today about my first Podcast with Greg Bottrill it got my brain ticking over with ideas. So, welcome to the podcast family “Real Life Practice” (ta-dah!)
However that’s where you, the lovely followers of my blog and social media pages come in. If anybody who currently works in a nursery or playgroup or is a childminder would be willing to chat with me and share their own ideas and practice for different subjects such as:
Maths and Numbers
Sustained Shared Thinking
Outdoor Play and Learning.
It would be great to keep them bite-sized as they are more accessible and “listenable” if that’s even a word! I record them using zoom but only use the audio of it but it’s nicer to talk to somebody when we can see each other and, luckily, a zoom recording also gives you the audio soundtrack separately which is what I use to produce the podcast, so we can happily record it in our pyjamas! (That is optional of course)
If anybody is interested then they can email me to go through it and arrange a convenient time to zoom call them to record. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Glenn (AKA The Male Practitioner) is talking about Provocations in the Early Years – what they are and how we can use them to extend children’s learning.
