Under the Sea Year 1 role play area

Discussion in 'Primary' started by carlijones, Dec 13, 2011.

  1. I am starting a lovely new "Under the Sea" topic after Christmas with my year 1 class. I need a role play area - it has to be something that I can send groups to in lit and num with a good purpose as head doesn't want year 1's to be child initiated. I was thinking of an aquarium with tickets to sell and signs to make for the fish tanks??? Any other ideas most appreciated! Thanks

    How about you turn it into a 'non fiction zone' with a variety of non fiction books and real photographs of sea creatures. Children to explore the sea creatures; appearance, movement, what they eat etc. Children could write a 'report' or factfile based on the animal, adding in captions for images drawn and then every time a factfile is completed they add it to a whole class 'Under the Sea' book so its becomes an on going class project. You could then encourage independent research and further learning at home.
