Listening and Questioning



This programme takes a look at the importance for early years practitioners to listen to young children.

With guidance from Diane Rich, of our Early Years Workshop team, we visit Evesham Nursery School in Worcestershire where the children are exploring the properties of water. With the outdoor water tap as their starting point, where will their exploration take them?

Chris, Beth and the other practitioners are careful to stand back and let the children explore to find out answers to their questions. Just how heavy is water? How does water move?

The practitioners are on hand observing what questions the children are posing, and are ready to intervene when appropriate to help move the children's learning forward.
