Child Development Practical

Year 10 Child Development students enjoyed a very hands-on lesson on Thursday, when they discovered for themselves how creative play helps toddlers to develop key skills.  Students enjoyed creating loom band bracelets , decorating biscuits and fingerpainting.  They correctly identified some of the developmental skills which these activities engender in young children.
