Stephen observed some of his children busy in the kitchen looking at some of the cook books together.
In order to further develop their role play and learning Stephen firstly observed closely and then he sensitively intervened where necessary to extend their communication and conversation further. He asked questions linked to what they were doing and what they were talking about. This then enabled the group to interact in even greater depth and explain their ideas, thoughts and feelings further; developing their communication and social skills through their self-initiated play.
There was definitely lots of talking and sharing of plans between them and they soon had a brilliant feast organised which they then set off happily to create together!!
We love seeing our children using real cookbooks to inspire their role play feasts…. and believe you me…. they are definitely feasts by the time they have all finished… cheers!! Xxxx
