Where it all began…
I am Emma, a qualified teacher, with extensive experience in EYFS. I believe strongly in the benefit of play based learning and continuous provision in the classroom.
During the school closures of 2020, I began supporting parents with play based learning. It also became quickly obvious that it was not only parents who were need of extra support but also time stretched teachers, who were struggling to find EYFS resources for classroom planning and assessment, that suited their needs and that of their young learners.
Is It Time To Play? was born!
...our hopes for the future
As a teacher I know how time-consuming classroom planning, creating and resourcing learning experiences can be! The aim of Is It Time To Play? is to provide flexible and time saving EYFS resources to suits the needs of all EYFS settings from Preschool through to Reception.
The variety of EYFS resources provided includes, planning, phonics support, assessment tools and continues to grow all the time.
Throughout the changes to the EYFS curriculum, I have supported practitioners and now provide planning, assessment materials and resources to help navigate the developments.
I always welcome practitioners ideas for EYFS resources you would like to see, so please do get in touch and see if I can help you!
