Graphic of the month

Marina (5 years 0 months) and the Library Van

Child-initiated role play can be wonderfully rich! On this occasion we had visited the city library, and then two weeks later had exchanged a box of books at the mobile library van that had called in the village - that our class had borrowed.

The children’s role play was rich in both literacy and mathematics – including using money and giving change, using a calculator, completing forms and writing letters. The role play appeared to have been triggered by Marina’s current schema.
