In an Early Years class of course!
Imaginative play, or make-believe, occurs when a child role-plays experiences of interest or reenacts their real life experiences. Children often use pretend play to work out more personal challenging life events and to make sense of the world around them.
The children in Fs1 have been role-playing being fire fighters as they sing along to the song ‘Hurry! hurry! Drive the fire truck.’ It is a great way for them to exercise their imagination and to play together as a group as they build on fundamental skills that are the building blocks for successful learning.
There is no set age to introduce imaginative play into a child’s world.
