Messy playA group of 0-1 year olds are playing with trays of spaghetti. Practitioners are on hand to support their engagement in this activity.
Good for looking at:
- Messy play
- Sensory play
- Fine motor skills
- Cognitive development
- Effective adult support
- What cues can you see that show what the children are interested in? (Look out for non-verbal and body language as well as spoken language)
- How are the children learning?
- Which areas of development, engagement and characteristics of learning can you observe?
- How do the materials provided support the children’s learning?
