Like Bees, Not Butterflies Summary

Like Bees, Not Butterflies: Child-initiated Learning in the Early Years by Sally Featherstone

Why is it that, when children play, some behave like butterflies,flitting around among the flowers of the activities on offer, landingfor a moment before moving on to the next attractive flower (activity)while others behave with the single minded concentration of bees?As children grow and learn, they acquire skills through play andpractical activities. This recently acquired learning is tenuous and issecured through practice, repeating the skills in different contexts,with different people. Only then will learning be 'hard wired' forlife. It is now evident that where children are able to selectresources, play companions and activities for themselves, they canpractise emerging skills and concepts by selecting the resources theyneed and using them in ways which are unique to them.This book, written by a group of experts in early years practice,explores the place and purpose of child-intitiated learning in highquality early years practice. Child-initiated learning is a key featureof the new Early Years Foundation Stage which will be implemented inSeptember 2008.
