Big Bears Room
Children in this room start to learn nursery rules and more complex social skills about other people’s emotions and likes and dislikes. The room design is starting to resemble a pre-school layout with more choices and learning how to use and look after the equipment/toys around them. The areas are more complex - home corner/ role play area, book area, construction area, small world, creative area, problem solving mat and a musical area. The areas have choices within which the children are still learning to tidy up after themselves.
Big Bears staff will use resources from Primary Bears to familiarise the children with toys/equipment from that room and learning how to use them. The two rooms work closely on the rules set for the children so there is no confusion when the children move rooms.
