People and communities: Children talk about past and present events in their own lives and in the lives of family members. They know that other children don’t always enjoy the same things, and are sensitive to this. They know about similarities and differences between themselves and others, and among families, communities and traditions.
The world: Children know about similarities and differences in relation to places, objects, materials and living things. They talk about the features of their own immediate environment and how environments might vary from one to another. They make observations of animals and plants and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes.
Writing: Children use their phonic knowledge to write words in ways which match their spoken sounds. They also write some irregular common words. They write simple sentences which can be read by themselves and others. Some words are spelt correctly and others are phonetically plausible.
We are continuing along our topic of pets for this week. Today I would like your child to follow the PowerPoint and discuss the information all about how to look after our pets. Once your child has done this could they add something to their work from Monday. For example, if they had drawn and described a dog could they add a sentence about when they need to be feed? or how many walks they need?
If your child would like some role play ideas could they be a vet and look after some of their pet animals. Now they have the information about how to care for them.
Could your child be a shop worker at a pet store who's job it is to look after the pets until they are bought. What pets do they have in their store? What would they need to help them look after the pets in the store?
