Children's Imagination

We try to develop children’s imagination throughout the centre, through art, music, dance, role play, stories and design technology. 

You could develop your child's imaginative play skills at home by:

  • pretending to go on a picnic or by acting out a story, such as the Bear Hunt
  • creating a model using construction resources e.g. Duplo, Sticklebrix or junk materials and then help your child make up a story e.g. This rocket is going to the moon. It will zoom past lots of stars
  • helping him/her to make up a story about a character, such as a princess, a pirate or a cat
  • helping him/her make pretend smoothies
  • helping him/her draw a picture of an imaginary character
  • playing some music and encouraging him/her to move appropriately to it.
