Filmed over a year, this production follows a 3-year-old boy at play in a wide variety of settings. He is seen on his own, with his mum, in a group and with a friend enjoying indoor and outdoor play around his home and playgroup. The sequences show how particular sorts of play enhance learning and development in some or all of the six EYFS areas. They can be used to practice observation and assessment and to look at the implications for planning. The film as a whole gives a clear view of the child's learning and development as he gets older. It builds up a holistic picture, telling us about his interests, social development and general disposition.
