Good Afternoon Everybody!
I am currently undertaking some research for my Research Project. The last hurdle before I can FINALLY enjoy being a NQT in my own classroom with my own class!
I need the opinions of other teachers. 
If anybody could help me out and answer these four questions I would be incredibly grateful. 
Comment below or copy them across into a message and send it my way.


How much time do you think you expend on a) planning and b) setting up the role play area?
If you could make any changes to the role play areas in your setting, what would they be?
Are there any particular groups of children who don't regularly interact with the role play area? Are there any that routinely do?
Finally, my idea is to create a role play area consisting of blank walls and floor with minimal props, that the children build themselves throughout the week. The theme of the area and topic of learning will have been chosen by the children beforehand. Ideally at the beginning of the term. 
The thinking behind this being, that the meaning and purpose of the space is assigned by the children. This ideology in turn, hopefully leading to better engagement with the space and creating a good opportunity to assess any learning that takes place.
Do you have any thoughts upon this proposal? Constructive feedback is always welcome.
If anybody wants/needs any further information, just send me a message. I am more than happy to talk about this in greater depth.
Enjoy your easter holidays!
