The third in the National Maritime Museum's 'How to' webinar series for parents and carers, this webinar will look at the role of play as families and children recover from a disrupted year. 

Over the past year, schooling and extra-curricular activity has been cancelled, playgrounds closed, and children locked down in their homes. The pandemic has drawn attention to the huge discrepancies in access to play and the outdoors between families and as school's look to 'catch up', we ask, what is the role of play and what are the benefits of play?

Bringing together expert speakers, and chaired by the Museum's Families and Young People Manager, we will be discussing how play benefits learning and development in all children and how parents and carers can facilitate play, and in turn, learning, in homes, gardens, public spaces and more. 

There will also be an opportunity to ask the speakers questions.
