The process of exploration is also associated with a lack of any expectation or preconceptions and with experiential learning, which, as I hope to demonstrate, is the most effective way to establish understanding. The importance of the scientific process was recognized before the implementation of the National Curriculum, with an emphasis on the development of skills by primary science projects and publications such as the Nuffield Foundation Junior Science Project (1964±6) and the Schools Council Science 5/13 Project (1967±74).
Piaget's ideas have been extremely influential in developing our understanding of children's learning. Piaget and other psychologists and educational thinkers have informed us about the needs of children in the development of their concepts and this knowledge has enabled us, for the most part, to make informed decisions which aid development and learning. Vygotsky (1962) and Vygotsky and Cole (1968) placed emphasis on the importance of language development in the formation of concepts and this again is a major principle of the Foundation Stage Curriculum.
We are also aware of the importance of physical (McMillan, 1930), social, emotional (Erikson, 1950) and spiritual (Steiner, 1996) development and the effect on cognition and the development of the whole child. We even implement ideas to promote cognition through physical exercise and brain health (Dennison and Dennison, 1994) and yet we have moved away from healthy school dinners, appalling some European colleagues, and free school milk for all. We appear to have forgotten some of our understandings of children's emotional needs and how they affect learning, in our desire to be politically correct and provide a secure environment in which children can learn.
