Dynamic Risk Benefit Analysis (RBA) and loose parts play.

Here are a few images from last term, to illustrate the successful introduction of loose parts play into a newly designed play area for all ages. Although some feared that this might lead to accidents, the key to success is a detailed play and outdoor learning policy that the school has in place. I supported a full debate about this and induction training too, with staff and children. The idea is that dynamic RBA takes place throughout playtime, as always! Nothing new there, just a new context. As a result the school has an imaginative play zone that is thoroughly enjoyed and is supporting skill development in a way that compliments the other areas of the playground.
