Activity 1: Exploring different occupations
Objective: To talk about what you will do when you grow up (relating to the book ‘The Girls’ by Lauren Ace)
Watch and listen to the story ‘The Girls’ together, read by Mrs Satnam (see below). Have a chat about the different jobs the 4 friends did when they grew up e.g. a teacher, a doctor, a mother and an adventurer / author.
Ask your child what they think they would like to do when they are older – would they like to be a teacher, doctor, parent or author, too? Or something else such as a firefighter, vet or pilot?
Perhaps you can use the Internet together to find out more about the occupations they are most interested in.
You could record some interesting facts about what you find out by either writing them down or typing them on the computer or laptop if you have one available.
Remember to share your ideas and learning with other members of the family too – when your child shares what they have learnt with others then this learning becomes more powerful and long lasting for them, too.
