On the fifth day of Christmas...

...we learned to celebrate ourselves

This Christmas, we're dishing out bite-size, top tips to remind families of the importance of play and realise just how many skills can be developed along the way.

Skill 4: Self-review

Top tip:

Allocate time for self-review after a session of physical activity or play.

Ask the children a few review questions:

  • What did you enjoy most today?
  • What did you do well?
  • What did you find hard?
  • What did you learn today?
  • What will you try next time?

Taking part in physical activity is great for a child's physical health. Reflecting on the activities is great for their mental health!

real play supports families to play and learn together. Not only does it allow families precious time to bond and share moments of pure fun and joy, it also provides them with the skills they need to be a healthy and active unit.
