Personal, Social, Emotional Development (PSED)
People Who Help Us
Over the next few weeks we are going to be thinking about different people who help us.
This week, we would like you to have a think about the people who help you at home.
Who is special and helps you at home?
How do they help you?
Have a chat with your grown ups at home and see what you can come up with!
Below is a BBC Sounds podcast which talks about who helps us at home and asks questions to get you thinking!
In your blended learning books, we would like you to draw a picture of someone who helps you at home. Underneath, write a caption or sentence to say who helps you at home and how they help you, for example:
My dad because he cooks me my dinner.
My mum because she helps me with my learning.
My sister because she plays with me.
Try and use the word because in your sentence.
Remember to use your sounds in your writing. This may be that your child can hear, say and write the initial sounds in words, or that they can segment, blend and write all the sounds of words.
Click on the 'sound mats' link under 'resources' at the bottom of the page. The children use these in school to support their writing.
Circle Time Activity
Circle time discussions are a great way to support your child's personal, social and emotional development. Skills such as taking turns and taking account of other people's ideas are an important part of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Sit in a circle with your family and take it in turns to say thank you to someone in that circle who has helped you today. You could pass an object around your circle to indicate whose turn it is to speak. Then, tell the person you're thanking what it is you're thanking them for, for example, "thank you mum for making me breakfast this morning". Hand a circle time 'thank you' card to the person you're saying thank you to! These can be found under the 'resources' section at the bottom of this page. Alternatively, you could make a thank you card for the person who has helped you today!
