Role Play Development!


Happy Wednesday everyone!

Role play is a huge part of children’s development. Here at Leigh’s we love our home corner and develop so many skills by using our environment to support role play. The children gain confidence and social skills through using their imagination in their play. The children have enjoyed making smoothies, they told me they were using orange and lemon juice and needed to pour it into the different sized cups. They also spoke about how they were going shopping and that the pizza cost £4.

Role play opens up a lot of other learning opportunities such as mathematical knowledge, fine motor skills and communication skills with their peers as well as giving them the chance to talk about their home life. They use their experiences from home into their play and listen and respond appropriately to their peers ideas. We adapt our home corner regularly based on the children’s interests. We often change it to a ice cream shop, vets, doctors or santas grotto.

So much love as always!
