People who help us

Today has been busy we have been lucky enough to go to the park for most the day as the weather has been amazing! So here is just a quick post of what activities we have done this morning. We have been looking again at people who help us.

This is the bus counting activity that I found on Twinkl this is brilliant as we are usually catching the bus so it is an activity Little Boo is familiar with and was pushing the bus around picking the people up from the bus stops pretending to be the bus driver. The added bonus was that the activity included counting!

We later decided that the Little People needed to be involved as it makes the game more fun.

They all then needed some "bus money" another great counting activity with the pennies. 

Paying the bus driver 

 After this Little Boo decided that she wanted to try out her new fancy dress and we did  hospital role play. This is the first fancy dress I have brought I have got a fancy dress box mainly with funny glasses and wigs but not a proper outfit I will definitely be investing in some more as she loved it.

I am apparently OK. 

I just wanted to share these figures with you as well we played with these when we got back from  the park.  They are called occupation figures and we were lucky enough to pick them up from the toy library this week.  I really like the set as they are not biased towards gender specific roles.  I would not like Little Boo to grow up thinking only men can be builders and women nurses! 

I am going to use these figures in some small world play I think she will like that.

  1. Good afternoon,
    My name is Abby and my boyfriend and I run a website which offers hundreds of free Early Years and Key Stage 1 teaching resources called Early Learning HQ (

    ‘People who help us’ is a very popular topic in early years settings and I can see you have been looking at the topic yourself with your little girl. We have lots of resources relating to this topic here and I was wondering if you would mind having a look at them to see what you think? If you have any ideas for different resources we could make then please let me know and I will make them for you.

    You can find our people who help us section here:

    Perhaps if you like the resources then you would consider linking to our page so other parents and teachers can find them as well? We make all the resources in a very small team in Swansea and it would be nice to share them with more people :).

    Many thanks,


I would be happy to hear any comments
