We are hoping to arrange some visits of parents/grandparents who fit into our ‘people who help us’ topic – please let us know if you’d be willing to come into Nursery for 5 minutes at drop off time to talk about your work…thanks! Perhaps you could show a uniform or equipment or say how you help others? Also, let us know if your child has a special interest in any area connected to this topic e.g. loves Fireman Sam, pretends to be a Doctor/Police Officer, interested in plumbing or mechanics, fascinated by rubbish trucks!
