The children have been exploring a 'pod' that we have borrowed from World of stuff.
Pods are collections of real-life objects for the children to use in any way that they choose, making their own choices, having their own ideas and making links with what they know about the world. We observe the children to see what they do and analyse what they might be thinking. Look out for the information about the World of Stuff that we are handing out to learn more about this project.
The children have loved the china teapot in our pod. Making cups of tea in the brass goblets and filling it with a variety of things.
We have added a toy china tea set and a plastic one too but the children are still drawn to the real one.
They also enjoy carrying the brass goblets around on their little tray. They have filled the goblets with playdough and tea leaves, then used them in the role play theatre as microphones...... what an amazing idea!!!
The children have shown an interest in putting on a performance this week. Their interest was sparked by a Peppa pig story that we read together. The children have made tickets, painted scenery and added their own pictures, bought and sold tickets in the box office and danced and sang together on the stage.
