Practical Life With Sweetpeas!


From a young age we promote independence in our Montessori setting. Taking part in practical life inspires the children to become more involved with daily tasks, gaining so many valuable life skills along the way.
The Sweetpeas have enjoyed using their independence to explore the different resources. They used the spoons to pour and transfer different sized items from one container to another. It was amazing to see them share really well with one another throughout. This activity encourages children to use their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Through age appropriate practical life play, children can develop a high level of concentration, taking so much pride in completing their task.
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
