Learning Opportunities: Ourselves and Our Bodies Cover

When babies lie in cots or sit in highchairs they begin to take an interest in their bodies. They explore their surroundings with their hands and feet. They learn to track movements and sounds with their eyes and their ears. Favourite adults are recognised by their scents, their voices, their appearance and their smiles. Milk and early foods are investigated with mouths. Tongues are used to lick. For many children these early experiences will be the start of a fascination for ‘ourselves and our bodies’.

This book provides a store of practical ideas enabling educators to plan ahead with confidence.
