  1. Hi
    We are just starting an underground topic and the children are interested in tunnels, fossils and mini beats. We are struggling to think of fun ideas for the role play which will encourage social development as well as writing skills.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

    what about an underground train, with a ticket booth. You can make tickets. Talk about people on trains and what they do; sing the wheels on the tube go... and then people create the usual sterotypes for wheels on the bus with a literacy focus on some eg. "reads book" 'types on computer" "reads news paper" "writes notes" 'texts" 'talks on phone" chats to friend. These may prompt play leave news papers, mobiles, pretend computer, note paper and pens on the train. In ticket booth provide paper in strips (or paper and scissors) to make tickets, remind children they always have writing on.
