People who can help us


During the school year, we usually look at people who can help us in our community, starting with grown-ups in school who can help us, leading up to who can help us if we have a poorly pet or what we would do if our home was on fire. 


We would normally do this through discussion to find out what the children already know, identifying different jobs and what the people who do those jobs are called. We would usually have visits from people such as vets, dentists, police and the fire brigade


I have specifically chosen this for children to look at during home learning time as I believe this is a perfect time for us to think of those people who are currently helping us - 'Key workers', the jobs they do and how invaluable their work is to us right now.
