Role play in the classroom
Children adore role play – just take a look at all the roles being acted out on the playground at breaktimes, as children play characters from their favourite TV programmes or comic books. As they ‘become’ characters from Hannah Montana, Merlin and Harry Potter they engage in adventure and excitement, often with sound effects and oodles of action and interaction. The skills being used are almost too many to list, but range from physical exercise to skills of a moral nature, from decision making to positive listening, from solving problems to developing complex rules. Both boys and girls are readily engaged in this type of active play.
