Structured Play

The eleven stations on offer are; reading and sensory den, computing, dressing up, small world, fine motor, malleable, construction, sand and water, creative, sensory and role play. The equipment encourages the development of physical skills, understanding relationships, problem solving, experiencing and identifying emotions, practicing roles, finding out what is ‘me’ and what is not ‘me’, relaxing, having fun and achieving mastery.

 

The questions that we will explore are:

  • What is a hero?
  • What are the different types of heroes?
  • Why do we celebrate Remembrance Day?
  • Who is your favourite superhero?
  • Can you name any forces?
  • How can we use forces to change things?
  • What can you find that is magnetic?
  • Can you talk about magnetic forces?

You could help your child by:

  • Talk about your own family and the people who make up a family.
  • How do you celebrate at Christmas time?
  • Can you recognise any forces at home? Push / pull etc.
  • Who are your own heroes? Discuss with your child your own personal heroes.
  • Encourage your child to read each night.
  • Share stories together.
