Paper Planes - Keith Rogers
It wouldn't be the National Playwork Conference without a little play time and it wouldn't be the National Playwork Award Ceremony without a paper plane war. So come along and up your paper plane game, learn to fold the best gliders and compete with other attendees to win the golden airplane.

How versatile is a stick, or sometimes a log! - Paula Madden & Kevin Johnson
This is an informal session and hopefully a bit of fun. We hope to incorporate some crafty activities that can be done with minimal resources so won't cost loads to replicate. Since training to be a Forest School Leader (Level 3) I am trying to incorporate more natural ways of connecting with nature and the environment that is around us. Anyone can pick up sticks whilst they are out and about. Hopefully at the end of this session, you may have a few different ideas to be able to do with the children at your settings, they can be incorporated in any way the children want, we are just trying to giving you some inspiration.
TIME: 11:30-13:00 LENGTH: 1.5 hours

Axe us anything about building with wood - Llew Jones and Lizzy Fleming
Leaf out any concerns about types of wood and fixings to use when building with children, or making semi-permanent larger timber structures within your play setting. Branch out during this practical session, as we share our knowledge of building with timber. There is an opportunity to handle different types of woods and fixings, plus tips on simple ways to confidently involve children with woodworking!
