This week’s topic is all about play!

Children don’t just play with toys – they play as part of their everyday life; they have a natural curiosity about their world. Everyday experiences support children’s exploration and discovery.

Heuristic play is exploratory play: exploring the world in their own way, discovering things for themselves.  This early experimentation develops problem-solving, concentration and perseverance.

Ideas you can do at home include making a treasure basket / box / bag of household objects for them to explore.
