Natural, real life, open ended, small world and sensory resources
Links to real life
We start with the things children know and are familair with and build their knowledge and understanding of their world through real life first hand expereinces.
Stimulating the senses
We focus on activities which stimulate the senses of touch, taste, sight, sound and smell and help the brain to make connections to activities, objects and words.
Children make the strongest learning connections to things they experience.
We try to make all learning experiences as real and hands on as possible.
We aim for children to be actively engaged in their learning.
In order to maximise this learning we select materials and resources which build on real life.
