This year, we have some new wonderful water play centres from Community Playthings. These water trays are not only a wonderful new play thing, but provide the most fantastic learning opportunities for our children.
To make the most of water play the teacher needs to be an enabler. We add the interesting, challenging, and puzzling materials to stimulate the children’s active play. This could be things like colours, funnels and tubes.
Since setting up the new water trays, we have seen the children work together as a team, to problem solve or check how an activity is going. This all links back to High Performance Learning: creating independent learners within the Early Years Cubs unit.
