Children aged 5 – 8 years are curious and seek to understand their world by questioning and exploring. They are active learners who need regular opportunities to move and exercise, this helps them to concentrate. At this age children are learning to read, write, talk and listen. They explore mathematical ideas to solve everyday problems. Their learning is supported by providing opportunities for play and hands on activities.
