Learning through play has come into the spot light in the past few years within Education and has reaped in the benefits for pupils.
This effective pedagogical tool develops children’s learning in a wider respect than learning in a more traditional and formal approach. Play enables pupils creativity to thrive, explore the topic that they are learning as well as offering a platform for pupils to work on their social and emotional skills.
Play should not be underestimated and thought of as something children do in their spare time, this is a highly respected way of learning. In Tiny Town Nursery we use the power of play to engage and inspire our pupils, whether it is learning about the different habitats of animals through using a water table, with ice or a tray full of broccoli and melted chocolate to represent trees and mud!
Next time you see your child playing, why not join in with their learning journey?!
