5WT4A: Using play and imagination to explore possibilities of products, places and spaces (Syllabus Indicator)

Most students will be able to achieve this indicator independently. Using play and imagination for students without a disability is exploring products, places and spaces the way they are intended and with their intended purpose.

For students with a disability play and imagination can look very different and may not follow traditional possibilities of products, places and spaces. However, it should be noted that while students with disabilities may not be engaging in conventional play their actions with products and within places and spaces are serving a purpose to them.

For students with high support needs or physical disabilities varying levels of support will be needed to assist them to engage with products, places and spaces through play. The aim of the teachers support is to encourage the students to explore the possibilities of products, places and spaces as independently as possible. 

Teachers should use their professional judgement when observing and assessing students using play and imagination and support their exploration of products/places/spaces by using appropriate teacher language.

  • If a student is using dress ups and dressing themselves in different pieces of clothing it may be assumed that they are using their imagination through play to explore a product.
  • If a student is in a sandpit and is digging holes, filling containers etc it again maybe assumed that they are using their imagination through play to explore a space/place.
