What we’ve been up to…
Millway Tea Party!
We feel that touching, tasting, and smelling real food versus toy food allows a child to really explore their world.
After two days of playing with a real tea set we decided to extend the learning opportunity by adding jugs of warm water, tea bags and milk and allowing the children to have a real tea party!
This was not just fun, there was an educational purpose behind it. Using spoons to stir and transfer ingredients and pouring from the teapot into a cup helps with developing the motor skills necessary for writing.
Recently our apprentice, Louisa, set up a lovely provocation opportunity for the children to explore and enjoy.
Provocation is a child-led experience where children use their imagination, thoughts, ideas and interests during play.
