Powerpoint to explain to parents why play is important in the Early Years and how it develops different skills. After each slide I added lots of photos of the children sometimes putting 3 or 4 photos on a slide to illustrate a point. I have taken them off this PP for obvious reasons.
Sometimes I use the PP for my talk at other times I have done my chat and put the PP on a loop so that it goes round continually and parents look at it while they go around the classroom.
This is the Powerpoint I use at the meeting for new parents coming to Reception. I add lots of photos of the current Reception class displaying things on each slide to make it more interesting and to give practical examples of their learning. Hope it's useful!
