EYFS – Bint Muhammad
During our final spring term the children have been learning about our community and the range of people who help us. The children got to familiarise themselves with different agencies we have available to us such as the fire service and doctors and nurses and got to learn about what they do in depth.
We began our topic focusing on the role of a doctor and read the story ‘Topsy goes to the doctor’. From this the children innovated the story to create a character who had a different illness and wrote their very own story about Adam going to the doctor with a sore foot.
Here you can see Adam Munshi begin to write his story.
After learning all about doctors we got various visitors to talk about what they do and how they help our community. Here you can see a dentist and police officer talking to the children about how they contribute. The children also got to learn some vital information on how to keep their teeth healthy and how to keep safe when they are out.
This term we celebrated World Book Day, and as it was Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday we took a look at various stories from the author and particularly enjoyed the story of ‘The Enormous Crocodile’. Below you can see the work of Abdullah Master describing the character from the story.
The children came dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl character and they had a fun time sharing their experiences of their favourite books throughout the day.
As well as experiencing visits in school from different services that help in our community, the children got to visit two different types of agencies that also contribute to helping the public. Our first trip was to Tesco, the children got to experience the role of a shop assistant and explored healthy and unhealthy items you can buy.
After this we went to visit the lifeboat centre in Lytham St Annes where the children got to learn about safety at sea.
I think it is fair to say that it has been a fun packed term learning playing and exploring and there is still another full term to go!
