With the publication today of a Save The Children Report about boys, it has been found that a quarter of boys are falling behind by the time they start in reception, their first year at primary school.

It is so important for teachers to make learning fun for children. Boys also need more physical activity and outdoor play to expel their energy – this in turn can help their concentration.

Learning must be about having fun and in the reception year, play is a crucial component of this. For example, children enjoy using their imagination and role play their favourite super heroes. Play will help with speech development and communication.



At Amanda’s Action Club, we continue to engage boys and girls as early as possible. With us, they learn to listen, play and do lots of physical activity to help their development in readiness for school.
