Happy Wednesday!

Let's head back to our class story...

Chapter Three

I hope that you are all enjoying our new class story so far. Come back tomorrow for the next part!


Learning Objective: I understand my own needs and how these are met. 


Today, we are going to be looking at what needs are and how they are met. To begin with, we need to understand what a 'need' is and how it is different to a 'want'. Find out more here...

Needs and Wants

Activity One

Read each word and place it on the correct poster, 'need' or 'want'. Then, discuss each need with an adult or sibling. Think about how each need is met. 

Activity Two

Create your own 'needs' and 'wants' posters.

Write your own words on each and draw pictures to match! 


Learning Objective: I am learning about numbers to 50.
