People Who Help us

This week the children have been talking about the fires in Australia. We decided to have a big chat about fire to see what the children were most interested to learn more about. Most children were very interested in what happens if a fire starts in their house and the job a fire fighter does.
As with all early years this quickly changed course and became an interest in people who help us and the job a doctor does. The children explored their understanding of the roles of people in society through complex role-play – being patients, doctors, nurses, receptionists etc. The whole playroom became a hospital – with reception, treatment rooms and a ward for serious injuries! The children asked so many questions and were keen to know how different injuries would be treated.
