Activity DefinitionsAdult-led activities
An activity with adult support which has a planned learning intention and is guidedtowards an end result
The child…
has direct adult support and direction
may be involved in a specific task set up by the adult but carried out independently
may be part of a whole group carpet time session, in a small group or working alonewith an adult.
Child-initiated activities
Child-initiated activities allow children to organise their own learning, to structure theirown knowledge and make sense of the world.
The child…
chooses the activity
owns the play by determining it’s purpose and outcomes
organises and decides upon the direction of the play
selects their own resources
develops the activity
is in controlChildren are not able to do this spontaneously. They need the appropriate environment toinspire and excite them; they need carefully selected and organised resources to select from;they need adults they trust to give them freedom and space but who are also available tomodel, support and join in with the play, on the child’s terms. It is during child-initiated playthat we can build up a true picture of a child through observation, as they are operatingindependently, without adult guidance or support. Effective observation is the basis foreffective teaching because it informs us of where children are in their learning and enables usto engage in sustained shared thinking.
