Small World Play

This section contains a collection of small world play posters on a variety of popular early years topics and themes. These are large panoramic posters depicting interesting scenes designed to encourage unique storytelling and imaginative play. These resources can be used to inspire a jungle adventure, a mission into space, a journey to visit a princess in a far off land, as well as many more exciting stories.

You may also find our stories section useful to help inspire small world play in your classroom or early years setting.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.
