Learning Through Play

The importance of play in Year One.


Opportunities for play are integral to the Year One curriculum here in Robins Class. Play is a vehicle for the children to learn to socialise with their peers and to develop positive behaviours when around others. It also provides us with experiences that feed into our writing, reading and science work. We actively encourage the pupils to use their imaginations whenever possible, creating an abundance of ideas for them to use throughout their time in the classroom.


Take a look at some of our 'Learning Through Play' adventures:

Exploring, making play dough and being together.

Role play: ask and answer questions.

Role play: imagine you are a circus animal...

Role Play: use a range of adjectives, verbs and adverbs to describe your play.

Use building blocks to create 3D shapes.

Use your number skills to complete maths games.

A few surprises on the class camera!


During our child initiated playtimes, the children will often take photographs of what they are getting up to. When I go through the camera I tend to get more than just pictures of the toys and their various creations! Take a look at the new craze that seems to be sweeping through Robins Class...
