Communication, Language and Literacy
Development matters: ascribe meanings to marks that they see in different places (30-50 months); use writing as a means of recording and communicating (40-60+ months).
Early learning goal: attempt writing for different purposes, using features of different forms such as lists, stories and instructions.
What you need
Group size: up to four children.
Role-play area; card; paper; posters; tickets; postcards; leaflets; diaries; till; money; writing materials.
What to do
Talk about the sort of writing that the children might see in a ticket office, for example, posters, leaflets, tickets, timetables and signs. If possible, and with parental permission, take the children to visit a train ticket office to look at what happens there.
Set up your role-play area as a ticket office and provide examples of posters, leaflets and timetables. Place blank tickets, postcards, paper and writing materials in the office for the children to use in their play.
