A New Mud Kitchen For Reception

2nd October 2017

Mr Reynard was busy as usual during the school holidays this summer building a mud kitchen for the new reception children.

Using recycled pallets and an old kitchen sink Mr Reynard has fashioned a sturdy multi-purpose work station for the children where they can to let their imagination run wild.

There has been much research in to the benefits to children’s development of incorporating a mud kitchen in to the outdoor provision for young children. The opportunity to explore using all their senses helps children develop curiosity and apply a range of skills.

The ‘mud kitchen’ is complete with a range of containers and utensils to support the children’s fine motor skills development, encourage creativity and experimentation provide opportunities to consolidate language and Maths skills through real life play.
