Example text

For instance, before the age of 5, the child sees a stick, picks it up and begins to play at being a knight, with the stick as a sword. After around the age of 5 they say; ‘I would like to be a knight, and I need a sword’, then look around for wood to make one, and generally it needs to look right! They have a mental image of what the sword should look like, and could spend hours sawing, hammering and sanding this sword until it looks good enough to play with. The impulse changes from being stimulated by the object or toy which leads them to the play, to the idea for the play, then looking for the toy or object to support it.

Repetition is a general aid to learning and memory and when we repeat something often enough, it becomes a habit.
