How many school years have started with an ‘all about me’ topic? A valuable opportunity to learn about our new children. But are you tired of the same topic activities? What if there wasn’t a home corner to prescribe the play? No worksheets to fill in? This toolkit explores other options to enable children to lead and take ownership. We look at how we can ‘guide from the side’, use the toolkit to really get to know new children, and not a home corner in sight!
