Through this expanding repertoire of play behaviour, children learn about themselves, about others and about the world around them, developing through play. Beginning with early sensory experiences, through the controlled manipulation and symbolic use of objects, to imaginative make believe, children’s progressive play skills offer them unique ways to experience and make sense of their world (Jennings, 1999). ’ is evident in possibility thinking across the lifespan (Craft, 2005). Summary Give yourself some time to think ■ Spend some time considering how Sheridan’s observations map on to the developmental sequences of Piaget, Parten and Erikson (described in Chapter 1).

Sheridan also detailed the increasingly social nature of play. To exemplify the changes she had noted in children’s play over time, Sheridan selected observations of children using particular materials and grouped these together in ‘play sequences’. We present these sequences here. As in Chapter 2, the ages noted below each illustration represent the child’s age at the time of observation and are not necessarily indicative of the earliest or latest time at which behaviours might emerge. Also remain mindful that wide variation is to be expected.
