In Nursery, we learn through play. We have the opportunity to express our ideas and thoughts. We can solve problems adapting, and thinking of ways to extend our play. We can use our experiences of the world to build on our imaginative skills. We can build on our own experiences but also use ideas from books and begin to experiment with fantasy worlds and the language associated with this. We can 'mark make' for a purpose during our play or find out more by reading a relevant story. We can develop our language by speaking a story. We can explore the world around us, experimenting with paints, water, mixing and feeling textures. We describe what happens and ask what would happen if? We learn to negotiate and make friends. The most important thing is we have fun learning.
