A Froebel Trust webinar which explores children’s participation in, and mastery over, their spaces, materials and activities. Recorded in July 2020
Dr Jennie Clement and Sian Sarwar discuss early years classroom space in Wales through a Froebelian lens, focusing on children’s participation in and mastery over their spaces, materials and activities.
The webinar also considers these spaces and principles within the context of schools’ responses to the current COVID-19 experience, exploring the impact of the design and use of reconfigured spaces in relation to Froebel’s principles.
During discussions, the researchers reflect on the potential opportunities to re-engage with Froebel’s approach to the construction of teaching and learning as a way of supporting and enhancing early years education in Wales.
