It was an active afternoon with the pre toddlers building a den in the garden.
Working together outside, we looked and talked about what objects might be useful and which would make the best den. With some adult help a fantastic large den was built using big pegs, tarpaulin and ropes. It was big enough for everyone to hide in! We played games and sang songs, pretending we were sat around a campfire.
Gradually able to engage in pretend play with toys (supports child to understand their own thinking may be different from others).
Beginning to make-believe by pretending
Selects familiar objects by name and will go and find objects when asked, or identify objects from a group.
Plays alongside others
Squats with steadiness to rest or play with object on the ground, and rises to feet without using hands.
