Thank you to those who came and spent some time creating dens with their children. I hope you enjoyed yourselves, I know the children did.
Also a massive thank you for your contribution to the Save the Children charity. Your money will go towards providing shelters for homeless children around the world.
Risky play is an invaluable part of childhood. Research shows that not only does it increase children’s physical and motor skills but also teaches them about their own limits, and how to deal with risks in theenvironment. Worry about children injuring themselves (or others) during risky play is preventing some children from having the opportunity to engage in such activities. Thus, it is important that teachers provide children with an environment where they can engage in risky play that is as safe as necessary rather than as safe as possible
