We have enjoyed engaging in our various role play areas in Reception. Role play is an important part of child development, as it builds confidence, creativity communication, physical development and problem solving. Along with being a fun activity, it also allows children to get into character and act out real life roles or fictional performances. It can be purely child-led, and encourages children to take risks and be creative with the role they are playing. By investing in some themed props and equipment, it’s a fun way for Reception to learn about different professions and their knowledge and understanding of the world they live in.
