Sue's Talk...

In this webinar, Sue Gascoyne explores the love it or hate it topic of Messy Play, or ‘material engagements’ as Sue prefers to call them.

Drawing upon research from Sue’s latest book Messy Play in the Early Years – Learning through Material Engagements, the webinar takes participants on a messy play journey, covering the what and why of messy play, exploding some myths, providing curriculum links, tips and ideas for staff reflection. 

Sue introduces the different stages of messy play, essential equipment and the importance of meeting adults’ as well as children’s needs in order to deliver successful and sustainable material investigations. 

Sue urges participants to try out different materials and reflect on their existing provision to ensure that their physical and emotional environment is enabling. 

Using the idea of ARC as a tool for planning for and appraising messy play interactions, a range of tried and tested ideas are provided for minimising stresses and maximising children’s engagement and opportunities for thinking with materials.

 Sue empowers practitioners to plot their own course through the world of material engagements and capitalise upon the benefits of locating messy play outdoors and reaping the benefits to executive functions and self-regulation as well as wellbeing. 

Above all Sue urges participants to try messy play for themselves, be it perfume making, scientific exploration or simply enjoying the calming effects of sensory engagement.

Presenter

Catherine Lyon

Hi! Myself and my company, spark Early Years, are hosting this session, which will be presented by an expert in their field, carefully selected by us to help you to 'get it right'.






I (Catherine) have been involved in Early Years and education for over 40 years; as a student, practitioner, team leader, trainer, assessor, manager, business owner of nurseries (‘outstanding' and award-winning) and a small training company 'registered' with Cache. I have been an ex-RgNI (with Ofsted) and a Quality Assurance Assessor (with the National Day Nurseries Association).






In my current roles, I often also act as an advisor/consultant in the UK and internationally, particularly in China.






FACILITATING PRACTICALITIES - I understand situations from all perspectives-child, staff, parents, teams, management and the necessity of how to make it all possible through successful systems for a thriving business. I am passionate and strive for high-quality early years education, where the child is at the centre of practice and there is an emphasis to “get it right”.
