Role Play

At the start of the Year we did not have a role play area in the classroom but it became evident that the children loved to explore their ideas through this avenue. The area is now developed as a whole class - working with the majority.  For the Spring term the suggestion of a Pizza cafe was a winner! Rather than setting it all up in an adult directed fashion the children are given the resources to organise the area themselves. We encourage complete ownership of the area which includes all their own handwritten signs and labels. As facilitators, we will suggest implementation of certain things e.g. price lists (maths), menus (writing) pizzas (shape). By partnering with the children to create these things the value in the child's eyes is increased.
