Learning about Occupations!


We’ve been busy learning about lots of different occupations recently, putting a particular focus on all of the amazing key worker roles out there given everything going on in the world at the moment. The children have been sharing stories about their own families, telling us where they work and their understanding about what they do everyday. It’s been so heartwarming to hear them talk about their families so passionately – the older children were very proud to tell us all about how their parents/carers help others in the community.

We then had so much fun dressing up and roleplaying the different jobs together, as well as listening to stories, looking at books, colouring in pictures and playing with our amazing key worker small world tray. Staff actively supported the children’s feelings, helping them to understand the changes going on around them during these strange times. We spent a lot of time discussing what we were looking forward to doing with family and friends when things go back to normal again to round up the activity which ended it on a really positive note for everyone!

Lots of love as always, stay safe and keep smiling!
