ELG: Exploring and using media and materials: Children sing songs, make music and dance, and experiment with ways of changing them. They safely use and explore a variety of materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function.
ELG: Being imaginative: Children use what they have learnt about media and materials in original ways, thinking about uses and purposes. They represent their own ideas, thoughts and feelings through design and technology, art, music, dance, role play and stories.
ELG: Children play cooperatively, taking turns with others. They take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activity. They show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children.
Today in topic I have listed three ELG’s that I would like to focus on. I would like your child and you to decided what they would like to find out about the police.
Here are some questions you could focus on.
- What the Police wear? Could you make something or dress up as an officer?
- What kinds of transport Police have? Could you make a Police car/van/horse.
- Where do the Police work? Police Station.
- Where are we likely to see Police Officers? Football games, in town when its busy, walking around the streets.
- Are their different jobs in the Police? examples are traffic officer and detective and community police officers.
- When do we need to use the Police? How do they help us?
Could you create a poster, a story, a song and dance or even something to show what you have learnt? This can be a project for the next few days so please think carefully!
We look forward to seeing what you come up with on tapestry.
