This week the children have been looking at what a community is. The children talked about where they live and then looked at pictures of different places they may have been to with their family. The children showed great listening skills and enjoyed listening to each other talk about their experiences.
‘I went on a bus all the way to legoland and it went to the right place!’
‘My mummy and daddy took me to hospital when I hurt my chin.’
‘I went to the dentist and they looked at my teeth and I get a sticker every time I go.’
‘My daddy went to the dentist and he had his tooth out.’
‘I’ve been to visit the fire station and I sat in a fire engine. You need a fire engine when there is a fire.’
‘You can call the police if someone is in trouble and the police look to see that children are wearing their seat belts in the car.’
‘I went on the train to London to see some fish.’
‘My daddy goes on the train to work in town.’
‘I went on the train at Thomas Land and it was really fun.’
‘We go shopping to Tesco and Wwaitrose and I help mummy push the trolley.’
‘I like going to the library to choose different books. I went with mummy and daddy and we read a book there.’
‘At the library you have to see the lady or man at the desk to get a book.’
‘In town I also go to the garden centre with mummy and it has a soft play area.’
‘I go to a restaurant with my family for tea, I like pizza express.’
What other places do you go to that your children might be able to tell you about?
