Create a small role area for the children to play in out of a display panel.
Using different teaching resources you can create different areas in the classroom for the children to interactive and play in. Here is an example of a small display panel area turned into a role play. Using a simple background and adding a bit of card to make it look like an Italian restaurant, the children can play with plastic food and toy money imagining they are in an Italian restaurant. They can take orders and count money with each other.
The teaching resources used for this display panel are printed from sparkle box, where you will be able to find lots of other ideas.
This display panel was made by year 2 teacher Caroline.
Here’s a brilliant winter display panel to make with the little ones.
Make a snowman outline and combine them on white and blue card to create the different colours. Help the children cut out and stick the accessories on the snowman and then put them all up on a big display panel in the classroom.

Make a gorgeous gingerbread house display panel with your class to give your bulletin boards that special touch!
You can get the children to help make the different parts of the display panel. The biscuit roof was made with thick brown paper and the biscuit design was painted on with brown paint. This would be a perfect class activity to do in an art lesson with all the children. The display panel can be made with children of all ages.
The house is made out of brown card put together and the bricks are made with sponge and paint, again another task for the children to help with. The door is easy with thick brown card and sweets stuck on it to give it that Hansel and Gretel effect!
The windows are transparent and you can use them to put information in them for the children to see. It can be your spelling for the week, you sound for the week or to display the weather.
The best thing about this wonderful gingerbread house display panel is the option to make it “christmassy” by adding the light and the candy cane at the bottom.
I hope you enjoy making this beautiful display panel!
