As part of our world of work week in Nursery we invited a range of visitors to come and talk to us about what they do and how they help the local community.
We started the week off with a visit from the fire fighters. Nursery got to climb aboard the Fire engine and pretended to head out on an emergency call in school. We got a chance to use the hose and even dressed up as firefighters with their helmets. Nursery made cards and gave them out to the firefighters to say thank you for helping to keep us safe in the community.
We then had one of our mums visit us to tell us about her job as a nurse at the Royal London Hospital. She told us about her special job, where she helps mummies and daddies to care and look after the babies. We got a chance to listen for heartbeats using a stethoscope, check each other’s temperature using a thermometer and we even had a look inside her medical bag. We used this information to look after the teddies in our teddy bear hospital and learnt about our body.
Our last visitor was another parent of ours from Nursery who works as a professional photographer and author. He bought in his lovely canvases and set it up as an art exhibition. He told us about his love for Bangladesh and how his photographs have helped others to relieve their experiences of living and travelling in Bangladesh. We got a chance to talk about how to take photos, why we take photos and what we could see in his lovely photographs. The children loved the colours and the images and as a result were very keen on taking their own photos afterwards.
