Denby Dale First & Nursery School


Welcome back everyone!

This half term we will be looking at 'People who help us'.


We will be finding out about different important roles. We will be trying to put  out fires, we will be running a doctors surgery, we will be using heavy machinery in our small world plus much, much more.


We are learning new games and how to take turns. We will be looking at positional language and  giving instructions to our friends.


We will be looking at similarities and differences. We will compare likes and dislikes with our friends.
