Teachers TV: Role Play - Setting Up and Planning

Overall rating 5 out of 55 (3 ratings)

Last updated 20 October 2012, created 15 March 2010, viewed 24,454

Worcestershire County Council Early Years advisor, Sheila Sage, explores the planning and setting up of a role-play area at Stanley Road Primary School.

Sheila and colleague, Sue Durant, watch the work of practitioners and follow the development of two linked role-play More… areas; an outdoor garage scene and a forecourt shop inside the classroom, which are inspired by the children's own ideas and natural play.

The practitioners link this role-play with the theme of travel and journeys that is already being covered by the pupils within the Foundation Stage Unit.

Thank you for sharing this. It clearly advises how to start with the children, and let their ideas progress. It nurtures teachers with step by step ideas on how to get the best out of the role play set up. It would be nice to see links forward about being able to progress the children's language and learning once in the role play.
