A challenge course was set up for both the morning and afternoon children with particular emphasis on 'over', 'under' and 'through' as well as climbing, balancing and jumping. This encourages active exploration and supports the development of body and spatial awareness.
This is an example of teachers responding to the challenges children are setting for themselves. This also engages other children in social groups, learning about turn-taking, waiting for others and participating with and alongside others.
