The Play Project

Description

A panel watch a video created by two pupils at Freshford CE Primary School near Bath, about a whole-school initiative that allows the children to play for two hours every Friday.

The video offers us a chance to see things from the pupils' perspective, recording not only the play project itself but peer interviews, action and discussion that's not mediated by teachers.

Education consultant Adrienne Jones joins video project leader Andrew Wishart, headteacher Anne Forrest and fellow teacher Darren Garside to discuss the project. They talk about the key issues of a relaxed curriculum, building self-esteem, confidence and student voice.

How can The Play Project provide evidence of learning? What is different about pupil behaviour and interaction when the teacher isn't there?
