The Army Camp
Children just love going on adventures and exploring. Our authentic Army uniform is the perfect uniform for brave new adventures. To make dramatic-play even more immersive our Army pdf’s, available in Irish or English make it easy to set up your own camp at home or in the classroom.
Our large format “I am a….”poster is designed to introduce the vocabulary around the theme of The Army where children can discuss the theme. Character Traits flash-cards can be added to the poster to encourage children to think about and identify the behaviours that they expect from a soldier. The “I use..” flash-cards help to introduce some new vocabulary; and the blank cards can be used to scribe the roles and responsibilities that the children consider part of a soldier’s job.
