#PlayYourWay – Supporting young people to be more Active and Physically Literate with BOING
06/12/2022, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
A bespoke practical workshop designed for Youth Workers, Coaches, and Young Leaders (aged 16+) to enable young people you work with to lead more active, happy, and healthy lives. Delivered by the experts at Boing, this workshop is part of the London Youth Getting Active Movement to improve practice and skills.
‘Play is the foundation of learning, creativity, self-expression, and constructive problem-solving. It’s how children wrestle with life to make it meaningful’ – Susan Linn
The workshop is focused on Learning Together by Doing Together. Some of the areas you’ll cover include:
- Exploring the Boing PlayTank – the free-to-access resource bank that includes a wide range of games and sessions
- Physical Literacy – exploring the 5 elements: Enjoyment, Confident, Competence, Understanding, and Knowledge and how your sessions can focus on these
- Harness the power of play – creating effective and engaging PlayGames that bring to life Physical Literacy for your young people
- Test and Learn – deliver the PlayGames and reflect on their design and impact
All attendees will be provided access to the online resources and tools, as well as a hardcopy resource pack to take away with them on the day.
