Play is how children learn and pretend play is an ideal way to exercise their creativity and imagination.
Under the concept of ‘Food We Eat’, a restaurant set-up was designed, where our little Prideen’s experimented with role play as they learnt about the importance of food and the various table manners.
Teachers created a fine dining restaurant set-up, beautifully decorated with their favourite cartoon characters. A small round table beautifully covered with tablecloth, with seating for 3-4, was set-up. Cutlery, along with napkins, was neatly laid on the tables. As the children walked in, they were shown to their tables. Teacher introduced to the chef and the waitress. Picture menu cards made it easy for the children to place their order with teachers pretending to be waitresses. While they were seated, teacher guided them on how to use their spoon, fork .Children spread their napkins before beginning their meal. They were also taught not to eat with their mouth open and not to talk while eating. They should always say thank you when someone offers them something eat.
Children thoroughly enjoyed the delicacies prepared by the master chef. Before leaving the children paid their own bills by swiping cards and received a golden coin as a token of being a great customer.
It was a thrilling experience for our Prideens and was evident as they eagerly shared their experience.
