These activities are supported by playing with water, sand, paint, colours, blocks, jigsaws and much more.
We learn how to look after ourselves by putting on our coats, opening our lunch boxes and washing our hands.
We learn the safe cross code and all about the community we live in; we participate in a series of walks visiting our local area.
We have story time and in our circle we all hear each other’s news.
We follow the changing seasons, experiencing the different weathers outside in the garden, planting daffodils in the autumn, making footprints in the frosty grass in winter, finding worms in the mud kitchen in spring and splashing in the water under the summer sun, we learn the days of the week and the months in each season as we play.
We learn to recognise our names and shapes, which aids our literacy skills and practice our pre-writing skills by drawing, writing our names and colouring. We learn science and maths skills pouring and filling water and sand, counting our friends, taking turns playing games like “what time is it Mr Wolf”.
While playing we learn how to problem solve, negotiate with others to find a solution and encourage interactions and friendships all benefiting our language development.
By providing space and opportunities to PLAY we support and enhance each child’s emotional, social, cognitive, physical and academic development
