Two of the girls are organising a trip, on behalf of the class, to WIndsor museum. This is not a 'going out' in the strictest of senses in Montessori terms, but it has been a really good learning experience. Today, the children, with Heidi, one of our volunteers, have role-played and conducted their phone call to the museum. Take a moment to reflect on what you have to prepare in your mind to organise something on the phone. This was the girls' first experience of using the phone for something 'formal' where they did not know the person on the other end of the line. The call is the tip of the iceberg in terms of the preparation they have needed to do for us all to enjoy the museum visit after the half-term break. It has been an opportune collaborative working project involving decision making and contingency planning.
