The Under 2's unit at our Lewisham nursery are all interested in transport, especially cars and trains. The wonderful carers based in the room set up a table top activity to allow them to explore their interest with more meaning. They used masking tape to make roads and rolled paper into tubes to make tunnels!
Children were able to develop skills in the Prime areas of learning; Personal, Social and Emotional, Communication and Language and Physical Development.
We extended this activity by making a ramp and heard some fantastic language like "ready, steady, go!"
