There's no place like home!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all settling nicely back into work. Dare I say it, but it's like we were never away!

With September, it's nice to start off easy in the role play area....and what better than a home corner! It's familiar and welcoming and ties in nicely with your themes for September.

I have a ridiculous amount of wall space in my's brilliant, I love noticeboards but for the first few days, filling noticeboards is the least of my worries! You might have seen the Edutopia article I posted on Facebook about involving your class in setting up your room.... it really made me re-think my classroom set up this year.

I always like to incorporate a noticeboard into all my role play areas....and let the children add to it as the theme goes on. 

For my 'Home Corner' I've simply added some (makeshift) windows and curtains. They're a nice feature but also inspire some really nice imaginative conversations. Oral language galore!
(Now, my curtain hanging skills leave a lot to be desired but you get the idea!!)

-What can you see out the window?
-Who is that coming up the garden path?
-What's the weather like out there today?
-Is that a car I see, I wonder who is in it?
-There's an animal in the garden, what is it?

A nice little feature and there's another noticeboard off the to-do list!

My vases are literally just card pinned around some plastic flowers. Easy peasy!

Have you any fun features for a home corner? Be sure to share!
