Active in Outside School Hours Care - Practical Games
Planned or spontaneous active experiences and games involving both children and educators support the physical and mental wellbeing of all involved. This practical session will combine real time experience and exploration of the theories and benefits of active play for children’s health, development and wellbeing as well as the social complexities of active play. Participants will be actively engaging in games including traditional and International games, so comfortable clothing and footwear will be required.
Participants will have the opportunity to
- Explore ways to make active play more enjoyable for all children
- Explore strategies and resources, and develop skills to increase opportunities for inclusive, safe and engaging active play that promotes equity and fairness
- Develop confidence in modifying existing and new games to engage children of all abilities, as well as adapt experiences to suit smaller or larger spaces
