A blast to the past – Children will learn about events in history and how people lived differently to us as we attempt to make personal links to the past. Previous topics have included World Wars and the bunkers on the beach, the Stotfieild Disaster, Cave men and Dinosaurs, Egyptians and Pyramids, and The Wild West. Through visits we explore our local environment, learn about our community and how to look after it. We learn about the services and professionals that help us through visits and role play. The role play corner encourages language & co-operation skills, as well as developing knowledge & understanding of the world; these include hospital, café, vets, hairdressing salon, florist, home corner, travel agent, optician, and shop. Children also learn about the weather and seasons.
