Unit: Changes
LO: To think about changes I am looking forward to.

Ask your child to remember some of the emotions they thought of linked to changes - excited, happy, worried etc.  Discuss that looking for positive things can help us not worry so much about the changes we are less keen on.  Ask your child what they are looking forward to as they move up a year group - this can be related to school in general and probably will include things they already do this year e.g. playing with their friends, using the laptops at school, doing art etc.  They might also mention things like a new teacher or just 'being a Y1' etc.


Cut up some coloured A4 (or white A4 that your child can colour) into 3 strips longwise.  Record in pictures and/or writing different things they are excited about and staple them together to make a paper chain to celebrate the changes to come.
