Immersing yourself in a whole new, sensory world is quite a rarity, and provides exciting new times for play and interaction between the children and the adults taking part. These interactions provide springboards of interest from which new avenues of exploration can be launched to support divergent thinking and action for both adult and child.

This pack will help educators have the confidence to take a big leap into the creative and breathe life into tired routines and spaces. New learning spaces will inspire new ways to investigate how things work – not just for children but for educators and practitioners as well. It can offer the ideal opportunity for us to get closer to understanding and empathising with a child’s way of thinking across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
