This morning I went live across my social media platforms to talk about Loose parts and how they might exist in the new world we're making for ourselves. I chose to go live because I've seen quite a few people commenting on Government posts saying, 'this is the end of Loose parts.' Obviously as a trainer who specialises in open-ended play and loose parts, this caused me quite a lot of concern. So I thought I should attempt to ease a few fears but also introduce my new section on the website devoted to bringing about a 'new normal' in our educational settings.

I'll be updating my blog frequently over the coming weeks and months with the guidance from the Government and the fears of everyday practitioners in mind.
