Teachers TV: Play to Learn

Diane Rich from the Early Years Workshop team visits Astwood Bank First School in Redditch, to see how play is incorporated into an average morning in reception class. Headteacher, Chris Rider, and reception class teacher, Jo Haynes, place a high importance on allowing children to develop their own stories through their play.

With a storybook starting point, the children are then free to play in the role-play area, puppet theatre, science lab or outdoors with the dressing up box.
