This week Little Birds have been inquiring into how police officers and firefighters help us in the world in which we live. We have been developing our understanding of others in the community around us.
We all enjoyed the mini provocations which were set up in the class; to solve the crime scene by thinking of ideas as detectives and roleplaying as firefighters.
Some of us enjoyed participating in imaginative play by dressing up as police officers and acting out scenarios. We developed our expressive skills!
To work on our counting and number recognition, we enjoyed learning a new number rhyme song called ‘Five police cars parked in a row’.
Little Birds also spoke about calling 999 in an emergency to request help from the police or fire service.
We identified and shared ideas about different scenarios in which we may need help. This developed our communication and listening skills.
We were fascinated by the phones; we pressed the coloured buttons to call each other and converse with our peers.
Little Birds also enjoyed listening to:
- ‘Emergency’ by Margaret Mayo
- ‘After the Fall: How Humpty Dumpty Got Back Up Again’ by Dan Santat
- ‘Busy People: Firefighter’ by Lucy M. George
