Learning in the role play area (Travel Agents) by Clare

The children were talking a lot about journeys and holidays so we created a Travel Agents in the classroom. The children have a telephone and a laptop for imaginative play and can also serve drinks to customers.

I created a questionnaire so agents could ask customers 'How they would like to travel?' "Where they would like to go?' etc and we added maps and brochures to expand discussion and learning opportunities.

The role play extended from the Travel Agents to the construction area as the planned journeys took place. Boats, trains and planes were made, holidays planned and tickets bought!

Sometimes you need a map

Children decorate the shop front and many opportunities for writing, reading and number work are naturally created.

Children create their own brochures
