‘Investigation time’ takes place three times per week. The aim of this time is to promote a sense of wonder, exploration, investigation, and interest with a rich range of materials, resources and opportunities in which children can engage. Play and active investigation gives children opportunities to develop physical competence and enjoyment, to understand and make sense of their world, to interact with others, express and control emotions, and develop problem solving abilities. Research shows strong links between play and foundational capacities such as memory, oral language capabilities, self-regulation, social skills, and success at school in general. The students get the opportunity to put into practice the literacy, maths, and other skills they are learning explicitly throughout the rest of the day.
