This coming week we continue Learning Block 2; Digging up the past. The children will continue to set up their museum café, dino gift shop and information kiosk. We will practice taking on new roles and work together. We will now add to our role-play by making our own menus, food orders and money/cash registers.

We will continue our Big Question this week is; What might you see in a museum?  This is a big question for us and requires some further enquiry next week. 

Here is a Peppa Pig episode where the family visits a museum. This will be useful if your child hasn’t recently been to a museum to support them in understanding what one is.   


This week we will practice using the Personal Quality Enquiry. We will practice observing real life contexts and then applying them to a role-play setting. This will be through our Museum shop, café and info kiosk.
