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. They can be used to practice observation and assessment and to look at the implications for planning.

The DVD 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.

For each sequence, the accompanying notes (35 pages) give information on the advantages of the particular sort of play and possible areas of interest to look at. Each has an example of an observation (narrative or target child), transcriptions of speech, a detailed list of points that can be seen in the different developmental areas and questions for reflection and discussion.
