Dear Mummy, attention please! I’m being the teacher today and playing with my new favourite toy. It’s called a Pretend & Play School Set which we’ve been sent to review from Learning Resources.
The school set is advertised for children aged 3+ and is perfect for preschoolers by getting them excited about starting school and building their confidence. It’s the ultimate school pretend role play set with 142 pieces included inside the box. It includes a tri-fold school backdrop carry case with little pouches that contain activity sheets, reward stickers, certificates, charts and maps. Theres also a dry-wipe board inside with a pen, eraser and double-sided calendar with a weather chart. Pencils, hand-pointer and even a school bell. It will help as a teaching aid for my mummy and I can see it being very useful in the future.
It’s great for explaining what I’m learning at school to my folks and my confidence has already grown using it. I’ve started to write my name and age on the board and practice my phonics. I like wiping the white board clean and its great for repeated use. My mummy likes that I can relay information about my classes to her through role-playing and writing on the set. It also helps my mummy to command my attention when doing school homework together through a play environment (plus the hand pointer helps).
My mummy is happy because its easy to set up and fold away after play and is easy to store. With carry case handles we can take it anywhere we want, even to Grandmas! I’ve been practicing what I learn at school on the dry erase board (watch our little video below to see) I’ve only been going to school for the past 2 months and already I’ve learnt so much! I’m trying to tell the time by using the clock with movable hands.
Anything that helps develop my imagination and social skills is good for us but the best bit is that it will help with my vocabulary development as I talk to my folks about my school days. You can pick up this school role play set online and prices seen advertise are from £25 – £32.
