A Twilight Session with the Author of ‘Can I Go and Play Now?’ Greg Bottrill at University Centre Weston.


6:00 pm


8:00 pm

Do you work within early years and primary education? We’ve got an amazing opportunity for you to gain first-hand experience from Greg Bottrill as he delivers a talk about his strategies and methods for working with children in education.

The session will introduce the play project approach. Play Projects are a simple yet powerful way to turn up the dial of childhood in your practice. Incorporating choice, creativity, collaboration, mark making, mathematics, joy, invention, and endless possibilities. 

Play Projects can be dipped into or shaped as a focal point of your time with children. They also have huge potential to take childhood up all the way to Y6.  The session will include a starter pack and a guide on how to send the massive joy of Play Projects from nursery to school.
