Lower School children “wind down” the academic year

In his book, “The Education of Man”(1887), Friedrich Froebel wrote: “Play is the highest level of child development… It gives joy, freedom, contentment, inner and outer rest, peace with the world… The plays of childhood are the germinal leaves of all later life.”

It is a “bee hive” of activities in the lower school as the children engage themselves in all sorts of play such as: functional play, like jumping in the sand, filling out the containers and dumping out the contents; construction of sand castles and roads; dramatic play, such as making and pretending to eat sand birthday cakes.

Performing these activities help the children acquire basic sensory and cognitive skills as they cooperate and communicate with their friends, form and share plans and ideas and work together to carry them out.

They also explore concepts such as cause and effect, volume, depth, absorption and balance.

Most importantly, the children are in control of their own world while playing in the sandpit!
