Travel Agency Role Play Area
The role play area was set up as a travel agents. The children explored holiday brochures, leaflets, maps and globes to decide where they would like to go on holiday to. There was lots of listening and speaking observed. This activity brought the outside world into the classroom, with many children relating to their holiday experience.
The children discussed the climate and methods of travel. This lead to them making boats, aeroplanes, cars and trains with the large wooden building blocks to travel in. They also discussed what they needed to pack in their suitcases.
They took phone calls from their customers and made tickets for them. This lead on to writing activities.
