Reflections

Undertaking a Reflections paper offers you the chance to have a short paper web-published and responded to by like minded professionals. These are a popular part of our website and we always welcome more papers. Please contact Rory McDowall Clark with your thoughts, ideas or draft/completed papers. How to write your reflections article – information here.

Winner of the BEST STUDENT REFLECTIONS PAPER OF THE YEAR

The judging panel has selected Emma Bailey’s paper, Placing Trust in Play: the playful practitioner, as the winner of the Student Reflections Award. Emma has just completed a degree in Early Childhood Studies at the University of Worcester. Runners up are Jaime-Lee King from University of Chichester for Embracing Neurodiversity and Amy Perkins, who studied at Craven College, Skipton, for a paper entitled We Don’t Play Guns at Nursery.

Congratulations to all three – you can read Emma’s paper below. The runners up will be published shortly.

We received some really interesting reflections on a wide range of topics. The reviewers felt that some of the other entries deserve to be shared more widely so we hope also to publish a small selection of additional papers in the future.
