The learning opportunities will also continue to be enhanced as children build up their own unique experiences and share ideas with their friends, as is the ethos of the EYFS. Through the continuous provision, children are given lots of opportunities for child-initiated investigation and play. This approach allows children to discover and test new things independently, consolidate new learning and gain a deeper understanding. This approach, we believe, helps them to become more independent through the Characteristics of Effective Learning that we are promoting: Playing and Exploring, Active Learning, Creative and Thinking Critically
