Role-play is an essential part of a child’s creative development (as expressed in the Early Years Foundation Stage). This section contains lots of printable role-play resources that will help to inspire socio-dramatic and free-flow play within your early years setting. They are really useful when trying to respond to the individual interests of children on any particular day. We have role-play resources on a variety of popular early years themes from an Airport and bus station to a post office and a zoo. So whatever the children in your setting decide they want to role-play we should have something that will help you to create an immediate impression of that scenario and that will also serve as a valuable literacy aid. We also have a huge collection of beautifully designed role-play masks. If there are any other role-play resources that you would like to see added to this section then please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
