Physics Play Date
I just wanted to say thank you so much to Miriam and you guys for letting us take part in the play-date at the beginning of the week. Miriam was absolutely fantastic with Eddie and he had a wonderful time learning about concepts in physics without even realizing it – in fact whilst having a lot of fun! I’ve not seen him so relaxed in a long while and considering he was exhausted as it was the end of a long school term then it could have quite easily been a very different story. he was thrilled to be the only child there (along with his sister) and he even asked if Miriam could come back and play at our house when he got in the car 🙂 The environment you’d created and the materials you’d made were really exciting and they captured his interest straight away . Miriam was extremely kind, flexible and patient with him and he responded really well to everything she said and did. she was enthusiastic about everything that he came up with and i loved that she just went with the flow of what was happening instead of trying to control him – i think it was a far more effective way of teaching him. he felt safe and secure and that his ideas mattered. i have since read more on the Movement Method and i would love to incorporate what i have learned so far into what i do when i start working at Eddies school again in September.
i wish Miriam the very best in her studies and hope to see her again sometime in the future working with children she was fantastic
Physics Play Date
We feel very privileged to be part of such a wonderful opportunity for Violet. A huge thank you to you and Miriam for another wonderful science play date today. Violet loved it and Miriam had created so many wonderful opportunities for learning, we covered so much! I have also been inspired to try more practical and hands on ideas at home. Violet will miss Miriam! She spent the whole journey home saying she wished Miriam didn’t have to go back to Germany and asking when we’ll see her again! They formed a really lovely connection.
It couldn’t have come at a better time for us, after such a depressing time with school, it has been wonderful for her to see that learning can be fun 🙂 we look forward to seeing you all again soon
