It is crucial within the Early Years to take into consideration the children’s interests in order to capture their attention and excite them in their learning. After they have chosen their topic they think of activities they would like to do and lots of children share things from their home, either something they have made in preparation or objects related to their interest.
It is an amazing opportunity for the children to have a voice and gain confidence talking about something they love to their peers. In Clown Fish class we have had topics such as ballet, penguins, cars, flowers and tigers just to name a few. The children look forward to this activity each week and the excitement builds as they find out who has been chosen. On Friday we will be finding out all about Dinosaurs!
