The role play and small world area both inside the classroom and out in the garden area have been utilised fully this week. As each child explores one of these areas on their own they happily engage with the resources that they are interested in and some even recall past experiences. As the child is playing another child may join them at the table/in the boat and for a while and play alongside each other. As a children develops, both children begin to playing together, cooperatively, extending and elaborating play ideas.
Play is how children learn and is a vital part of child development. All children play, but do so in different ways and at different ages. Play occurs in stages that reflect where the child is currently at, this can depending on the child's social experiences, developmentally where they are at and emotionally ready to engage in different types of play. Each stage of play gives a rough estimation of when this occurs, however as every child is unique, a child may reach a stage before or after others in their age group as they will develop at different rates.
All the passengers have now disembarked the ferry's and ocean liners and now ready for the next part of their journey. They are going to need their passports, tickets and luggage as they go 'Up, Up, Up' sailing with the clouds with Miss Sallie next week.
