In this two-part course Di Chilvers explains the “Pedagogy of Children’s Interests” and how central this is to their development, identity, thinking and learning. Including examples of practice from an extended project at Maples Nursery School and Children’s Centre.

We will explore:

– How we recognise, support and build on children’s interest and ideas

– The relationship between children’s interests, funds of knowledge and cultural capital

– How children’s interests and funds of knowledge inform and inspire your curriculum

– How you can support children’s interests in partnership with them through co-construction

The following extract is from a child’s learning story at Maples Nursery School, Ealing, London as they explored the pedagogy of children’s interests through an extended project. This is how children co-construct their curriculum with supportive adults

“Your interest in construction and building was the spark for continuous investigation and unfolding ideas of how to build walls and roads and then houses, towers and stairs. I wonder why you are so interested in these types of buildings? There are so many different types of towers in the world we could have a look at some of those together? What do you think?”

Sessions:

Session 1 – 8th March – 4pm-5.30pm

Session 2 – 30th March – 4pm-5.30pm
