At play, children take learning into their own hands. Using their own ideas, they create, collaborate, and solve problems. Environments and relationships that create an atmosphere of trust, while providing positive and engaging experiences, are necessary for healthy, developmental play therefore creating the appropriate environments for children is very important. This applies to the classroom but also to shared learning areas, corridors and, indeed to a child’s home environment.
In Foundation Stage 3 and Year 1, the teachers and teaching assistants have put their creative and professional experiences together and done a fabulous job of transforming the shared learning area into a stimulating environment with multiple learning activities for our young learners.
Our learning environment now includes:
- materials that are fun, promote learning through play, and challenge children to think creatively
- a language rich environment full of labels and questions
- opportunities for positive and rich communication which encourages children to explore and develop language
- sufficient time for playful exploration and discovery which is focused.
Next time you visit our Early Years Centre, why not call into see the newly designed area and wander around the activities? Can you find the underwater themed writing area; the magical story telling tent; the discovery area; the investigation of shapes table; the construction site; the BIS shop, the reading garden and the art tables?
Our older children were active outside the campus this week as
