Alistair Bryce-Clegg, inspiring educational EYFS consultant and advocate for play in KS1, states that “play is a self-initiated opportunity where children are motivated by engagement and curiosity to use every aspect of their creative and critical thinking brain to consolidate and rehearse what they already know whilst actively creating new knowledge.”

Children thrive when their needs are met across all domains including emotional, social, language and physical needs as well as throughout their own personal learning journeys.  It’s true that we have a destination and goal for these children to achieve the expectations of a broad and balanced Early Years curriculum by the end of the year. How we do this is so important.  If we get it right in the Early Years, we hope to encourage children to be curious,  to foster a love of learning and who genuinely love coming to school.
