Hi,

I wonder if any one can help me? I have just returned to teaching after long term sick. I was informed by HT that I am to be observed after the holiday in CLL. I had been thinking about a police station role play area. Has anybody got any ideas to inspire writing activities?

Thanks

I had a police woman in which the kids loved! We then made wanted posters which they stuck around the police station roleplay. Maybe you could read 'Burglar Bill' or find another story about a burglar? Good luck! x

Wow! your HT is a bit keen!!! No ease back into the job then.

 

Have you had a chance to vist a police station or get a police officer in to talk to the children?

 

I find after seeing the real thing and/or talking to a real police officer it gives the children ar better understanding and therefore a reason to write.

 

Do police officers still keep a little black notebook if so I would have lots of these around. Also last time I visited a school with a police role play it was a police cell and the children arrested me and put me into the cell. they then had to write a report of why I was in prison.

 

Children may have to write wanted posters there is a great video on teachers tv where the children are officers looking for the big bad wolf and they a have drawn pictures of the suspect and written what they look like.

 

I am sure many more folk will come with much better ideas!
