Play is continuously developing in our classroom. Play is a fundamental part of for primary aged children and particularly in the early years. Amongst many other things, it allows the children to extend and apply their learning, be creative, develop social skills and allows them to explore their imagination.  The children are very keen to show their adults at home around the classroom and for you to see what play is like in our P2 classroom.
