Revitalising Water Play Children love to experiment with water, and this natural desire leads to rich learning possibilities across the curriculum. They enjoy pouring and filling containers, discovering all of the ways water moves and reacts with other things, as well as using water as a context for imaginary play. To enrich this learning it is good practice to display resources linked to capacity such as sets of graduated containers with standard measures. Water wheels, pipes, tubes and sieves promote investigation and problem solving – and a good selection of small world resources inspire imaginative play.

Transforming Small World Small world play is rich in language and is a fantastic resource that helps children to use their imagination and explore the world around them. By offering quality, lifelike resources that connect with the real world, children are able to represent the people and places familiar to them, acting out narratives through the characters, reflecting on events in their lives. By adding fantasy characters, children are able to delve into their imagination – royal figures, mystical creatures, pirates and superheroes all come to life as children engage in rich and sophisticated storytelling.

Improving Maths Exploring number, space, shape and measure through hands on, open-ended activities and games brings maths to life. Although challenging to get right, a carefully planned maths area provides a wide range of natural resources to sort, match, order and compare as well as lots of equipment to learn about number through games, rhymes and songs. With encouragement and support, children will soon know how to use the resources independently and become engaged in meaningful experiences that lay down strong foundations for later learning.

Reshaping Role Play In the early years, dramatic play is closely connected to children’s everyday lives. Children relive all of the situations that are familiar to them. They become mum or dad, a baby or older sibling, help with the washing, cleaning, cooking, as well as eat together, feed or bath the baby. Through domestic role play and dressing up as real life and fantasy characters, children are free to express their ideas and be as imaginative as they like. They can create scenes of make believe stories and re-enact many of the situations, people and emotions they meet everyday.

Resources Through using both real life and fantasy role play, children will develop PSED and language skills through exploring feelings, understanding relationships and negotiating roles.

Enriching Books & Puppets There are so many wonderful fiction and non-fiction books to enjoy, with interesting characters that children come to know and love. Igniting and sustaining children’s love of books is such an important responsibility for all early years educators, and it is essential to choose books with great illustrations, lots of rhyme and books with great characters and story lines. Puppets complement these books beautifully stimulating children’s imagination and helping children to engage fully with story, song and rhyme. Linking books and puppets is a great way to bring ideas to life.
