Key workers

We have been in school this week and it has been about key workers. Who are they? What do they do? Why are they key workers? We have had lots of fantastic discussions, role play and making key worker scarecrows, we have had such a fun week.

We have used our fine motor skills by fastening buttons, cutting material with scissors, wrapping string and dressing the scarecrows.

We made faces for our scarecrows using paper plates, pens and wool for the hair.

Look at our amazing scarecrows. This is why the children made the key workers.

‘A farmer who grows food that we eat.’



‘A policeman who protects us.’


”A Doctor who makes us better when we are sick.’


‘A scientist who finds out more to help us.’

Hope you have a fantastic weekend.

Hopefully when the wind calms down we can put the scarecrows in the school gardens.

Keep safe.

Hope you are all safe and well. I am in school this week, we have been thinking about why we clap on our doorsteps on Thursday nights. Who are we all clapping for? What is a key worker? Why are they a key worker?

The children in school created a mind map of all the key workers they knew, some of their parents are key workers so they talked about how they help us.

We clap on Thursday nights at 8pm to say a HUGE thank you to all the key workers who are everyday risking their lives to help us through this very strange time.

Suggested activities.

  1. Write a list of key workers you know.
  2. Draw and label key workers.
  3. Write simple sentences about the key workers

A doctor helps people who are sick.

A scientist finds out about the virus.

4. Make a key worker scarecrow like we have made at school.  I will post some pictures tomorrow of the key worker scarecrows we have made so far.

I hope you have as much as we did with these activities.

Keep reading, keep practicing your 2s, 5s and 10s times tables and most of all stay safe.

Miss you all lots.

I would love to hear from you, you can send any photos to our school email.

I can see ______________.

I can hear ____________.

You could even create a poster and draw and label what you can see, hear, smell, feel, touch and taste.

I use my nose to smell.

3. Get an adult to find some items that you could use your senses to identify what it is. Like Harrison in our class you could wear a blindfold, to smell, to taste and to touch. This can be so funny.


Did you identify what the things are?

You could record in a simple table.

I would love to hear from you and what fun you have engaging in the activities.

Keep safe.

Missing you all lots.

Thank you

Thank you so much to Bonnie who has sent me some fabulous photos of what she has been getting up to this week.

Bonnie told me that ducks should not have too much bread as it is not a healthy snack so she has made some healthy snacks for them. I will definitely be making some of these for the ducks near my house.

Bonnie has also been planting some seeds, she has drawn flowers and labelled the parts too. She also created posters to show how to look after the seeds to help them grow.

Following on from planting flowers Bonnie found some wild flowers on her adventures in the park, I love wild flowers, so many colours.

It is so nice of you to keep in touch. I am missing you all so much.

Stay safe.
