Developing literacy through creative role play with Moyra Boland
June 10 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Through play children take on a wide variety of roles, using play to make sense of the world around them and test out what they know and understand. Practitioner’s ability to support creative role play and understand the ways in which they can support children and extend their use of role play is a critical tool in developing literacy in early years. The language of role play is rich and varied, the possibilities of who a child can be within the role-play is limitless. Practitioners can support and encourage language development through role play, allow children to use the principles of play and develop their ability to communicate with their peers and adults.
Participants in this training will:
• Explore the principles of creative role play.
• Engage with and understand literacy and language within play.
• Devise ways in which role-play can support children’s language development.
