People who help us

As part of our ‘Marvellous Me’ topic we have been looking at people who help us to have better lives. Whether it be from scientific contributions in the past e.g. Louis Pasteur and the discovery of vaccines, which make us better when we are poorly to everyday and often unsung heroes like doctors, police men and women, firefighters, vets, nurses and lollipop people who assist us with crossing the road safely.

Year 1 discussed together about how these amazing folk go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure everyone can live in a safe, secure world and get the help they required when it is most needed.

The children then chose one role model to make a cone puppet of and wrote an explanation as to why they’d selected that person.

Here are a few reasons they gave:

I picked the firefighter because ‘They put out fires and save cats’

I chose the policeman because ‘They chase baddies’

I nominated the builder because ‘My Daddy is a builder and helps make houses for people to live and be warm in'

I selected the vet because 'They help animals when they are poorly'
