Children’s learning in the early years is not compartmentalised and areas of learning are closely connected and linked. This is particularly so because children learn by doing. Manipulative skills and refinement of coordination of movement feature in every area of learning. The Montessori areas of learning can be organised into the six areas of learning identified by the foundation stage curriculum. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ personal, social and emotional development; communication, language and literacy; mathematical development; knowledge and understanding of the world; physical development; creative development.

From the point of view of Montessori education today, the sensorial activities still form the foundation of later academic learning. It is also important to understand that like all foundations, the opportunity to extend the child’s knowledge of these concepts and apply them to contexts that are familiar and meaningful to the child is very important. Through the application of these concepts in social context we can see what the children learned and understood by using the sensorial materials. For example, it is important for Montessori teachers to offer opportunities for open-ended exploration of the qualities and properties of shapes by offering children opportunities to use unit blocks (Gura, 1992).

Montessori teachers introduce continents from a multi-sensory perspective, first by looking at the globe and then by working with the puzzle map of the world that identifies each continent by its unique colour. Collections of objects and pictures from each continent are contained within artefact boxes and give children opportunities to explore each continent through its music, clothes, food, plants and animals as well as festivals and geographical features. The boxes are fundamental in bringing the lives and cultures of different continents into the classroom and, by doing so, promoting multicultural awareness and respect.
