National Fitness Day: Baby room

Today we enjoyed lots of different sensory experiences for national fitness day! We walked, crawled, jumped and played with sand, oats, water and lots of different textures and materials.

Sensory play is the exploration of anything which incorporates a combination of stimulating any of a child’s five senses including sense of touch, smell, taste, hearing, and sight. For babies and toddlers, the more senses that are being stimulated at once, the easier it is for them to start building their interpretation of the world.

Use of sensory play promotes the Prime areas of Learning and Development listed within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS); communication and language, physical development, and personal, social, and emotional development.

We found that the children showed lots of interest in the oats and the sand and loved it when an adult sprinkled them on their feet and when they explored the trays independently
