When children play they are mastering a wide range of skills that help support areas of STEM. Imaginary play allows children to problem solve and experiment with spatial awareness. By moving, running, jumping and climbing children are building their awareness of space and distance which greatly supports maths and numeracy skills. 
Songs to sing: 
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom We’re Going to the Moon, Silver Balloon, and I’m a Little Rocket ship.

Key message: Children learn by being engaged and doing.
