ACTIVE LEARNING THROUGH PLAY
We ensure that our environment and delivery of the curriculum incorporates the three characteristics of effective teaching and learning:
- Playing and exploring – children will have opportunities to investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’.
- Active learning – children will have time and space to concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties, and enjoy their achievements.
- Creating and thinking critically – we encourage and support children to have and develop their own ideas, make links between ideas, and develop strategies for doing things.
These are referred to as the Little Learning 3 and link to the schools Learning 9 behaviours.
