Last week reception class explored the topic of ‘jobs’ in our lessons. We began by discussing different types of professions in morning Circle Time, and then sharing what each child would like to be when they grow up. We had many examples; from police officer to inventor! I was flattered to hear a few students telling me they would love to be a teacher like me, as they have so much fun at school.
Reception had the chance to use their imagination for a ‘Doctor’s Office’, roleplay, where students took turns acting as doctor or patient, helping to diagnose problems such as colds or broken arms! Reception class were caring and attentive in their role, and I am sure they would make fantastic doctors one day.
Reception enjoyed learning more about new careers, and as an end-of-week treat, they all dressed up in different career costumes and enacted what they thought the job consisted of. We had some competent hairdressers, and some interesting meals created by our ‘chefs’! We interviewed each job role, and asked questioned about what the career consisted of – we had some fantastic answers! Overall, reception class learned how varied and fun jobs can be, which leads into our exciting topic this week of ‘The Life of a Chef’ – we can’t wait!
