Martin Pace from award winning Reflections Nursery and forest School;
At Reflections we draw inspiration from Reggio Emilia and listening to children is critical to our approach. We find that the quality of listening with verbal children can often depend on the quality of the questions we ask. We chose to work with Sara in order to deepen our questioning. To ask questions which connected with the underlying themes of their play, rather than what we might see superficially.
Working with Sara was a pleasure – she was great fun and really helped us in two key areas. Firstly in developing the team’s understanding and interpretation of children’s play and secondly, in better supporting children’s thinking, negotiation skills and self-expression. Sara reminded us that children think about the big questions – what is reality, friendship, freedom, choice, responsibility, power? And she gave us the tools and the confidence to tackle these questions with children, to get them thinking about them and discussing them with their friends.
