Park House (2 & 3 Year old provision)
Our first topic for the Summer term is, ‘Why can’t I have chocolate for breakfast?’ In this topic we will learn about healthy eating and how we can help keep our bodies healthy. We will explore foods in many forms, fresh, tinned, and frozen. It will be a messy topic but lots of fun to be had by all! We will explore the jobs people do to keep us safe and healthy, doctors, dentist, Police and firemen. We will have the opportunity to role-play being a fireman or doctor and we will learn about their roles in our community. Our traditional tales for this half term are The Little Red Hen and The Enormous Turnip. We will enjoy singing many songs together and reading lots of stories about food.
