Early Years: Christmas Role Play

Role play is an important part of children’s learning. It helps to develop confidence, creativity, communication and relationships. It allows children to make sense of the world by providing opportunities for children to act out their own experiences.

The children in Reception have been very excited about the Christmas role play area. They have been busy dressing up as Santa’s elves working in his workshop. They have particularly enjoyed wrapping presents, using scales to weigh different sized presents, writing letters to Santa using their phonic knowledge and making Christmas cards. They have had lots of fun discussing the process of posting a letter and how it gets delivered.
