This can sometimes be a challenging issue to respond to in early years settings but this resource will provide positive ideas to engage children in purposeful play. The wide ranging activities support language, literacy and creative skills across the EYFS.
Many of the ideas can be developed both indoors and outside, allowing children to express their experiences and feelings on a bigger scale throughout the setting. They may use superhero play to explore identity, issues around power and control, for conflict resolution and problem-solving scenarios. All of this feeds into their active learning and thinking skills. 59 pages, A4.
