The Early Learning Centre 2 (ELC2) class at the International School of Berne has designed and created a rainbow castle role play area within their classroom.

Role play provides an invaluable means for children to consolidate their understanding of knowledge and skills through meaningful experiences, or to try out new ideas in a safe and familiar environment.

Through role-playing children develop communication skills. According to current research, a child's capacity for creative thinking and cognitive flexibility are closely linked to role play.

Role Playing:

  • Motivates and engages students.
  • Enhances current teaching strategies.
  • Provides real-world scenarios to help students learn.
  • Teaches skills used in real-world situations (negotiation, debate, teamwork, cooperation, persuasion).
  • Provides opportunities for critical observation of peers.
  • Develops the imagination that will later be used within literacy.

ELC2 is enjoying dressing up as princes, princesses, knights and dragons and creating their own scenarios. They have also been taking books into their castle to have a cozy reading space.
