Where would we be without our imaginations?
What would our world be like without inventors and innovators?
Encouraging imaginative work is vital and children are creative in so many ways. It's crucial we encourage imaginative play from the onset and education is one area where creativity is key to secure good development!
Children enjoy the task of 'designing a monster' and I always find it helps if they draw a picture first rather than at the end. This piece of work really impressed me as it shows such great creativity. Phonics, reading, pencil control and science are all aided in this exercise and thematic learning is popular, especially with my primary pupils.
