Today we started our St Georges Day activities. This always means lots of role play and acting out the story Of St George!
We also have a small world area set up with a castle, Knights and Dragons. This is a big hit and the children were happy to have it back out again.
Buddy Bear got all dressed up in his Knights costume.
The Girls spent a lot of time at the small world area today. Little "R" filled a treasure chest with little Diamonds and Little "L" put Knights on horses!
I hung our England flag and gathered up a few England hats for the children to try on.
When the older children came home from school, the real role play started. We had a chat about using swords safely and before long the Knights and Dragons were in full costume and racing around the garden trying to catch each other! I invested in a new Dragon and Knights costume for the older children and I am really pleased I did. It is so lovely to see older children role play and become immersed and engaged in a make believe world of their own creating! Changing the story, adding their own details, using new language and really making the story their own!
I am very much looking forward to tomorrows fun!
