Goldilocks girl playing with bear

With World Book Day coming up in March, what better way to be inspired than with these activities? Traditional tales and well-known characters provide great foundations for children’s own imaginations to develop. Extend your role play with a superhero focus for active, energetic scenarios and to ensure that you embrace each child’s interests. Simple costumes can easily be improvised, using fabric paints on a sheet, made into a tabard or cloak, and asking for unwanted props and outgrown clothing will furnish a dressing-up box. Read more…

Children in role play

This popular topic is a great way to draw upon children’s knowledge of their immediate surroundings and the important people who help us.

Let’s get ready!

Girl dressing up

Introduce children to celebratory dressing up. Explore the varied traditional weddings of different faiths, and invite children’s parents to share any wedding or party images to reflect the ways in which people may dress up, venues they may use and accompanying aspects – vehicles, food and decorations. Explore ‘team’ spirit and identifying strips and colours for sporting activities and events. Encourage children to recognise that, in sport, teams may compete against other teams, and that ultimately sporting games are for fun for all. Read more…
