Mud Kitchen It is an auspicious day as we inaugurated the Kindergarten mud kitchen. The Guest for the day was accompanied by our school principal Mr. Paramjit Ahluwalia. As soon as he arrived, the children welcomed him with joy and enthusiasm. Our distin- guished guest, staff and students took part in the programme in various forms. Mud kitchens are amazing spaces for sparking children’s imagination. It takes a good deal of creative thinking to transform muddy creations into culinary delights. To allow the children the freedom to play, explore and learn to their full extent. Teachers have been a part of the designing and planning process and chil- dren have seen how the kitchen has been built from scratch by their own teachers using recyclable items. This is a wonderful example of the teachers using their knowledge of what children need exposure to for fabulous and joyful learning, their observa- tions of the children at play and scaffolding discussions so that the children have been able to have a voice in this amazing out- door opportunity. 5
