In reception class the children learn through play experiences in order to meet the needs of the EYFS curriculum. Child-initiated play is very important and so we operate a self-service system so that children can choose which resources they want to play with. In order for this to work, the children learn to self-select and also how to put the toys away through a set of class rules e.g only 2 boxes of construction are allowed out at one time and if it is tidy up time everyone tidies away what they have been playing with. This helps the children to work together as a team and they love the routine. Here are a couple of videos as an example.
