Role Play Panels
Role play panels are a key staple of any classroom or nursery setting. This is because they help to provide a focus when children are using their imagination and creativity. Through role play, children not only have fun, but mimic situations and environments familiar to them. For example, are they a shop keeper dealing with a customer? Or are they working in a garage fixing a car? Maybe they are at the Post Office sending a parcel to a friend.
The joy of role play
Children learn a wealth of other skills they will need in later life. For example, as a shop keeper, they learn about money and in the Office they are taught about weights and postage costs. The health centre role play panel can also be used as an interactive learning tool on the benefits of healthy eating. In today’s world of convenience and fast food a health centre play panel encourages children to better understand their bodies and how to look after them.
