As this weekend is Remembrance weekend the Rainbows have been learning about "the past." One of the activities was revisiting the "Ourselves" topic and talking about changes over time. They talked about what has happened in their past and how they have changed.
They looked at pictures of different people throughout their life. They had to order the pictures to create a timeline. Rainbows remembered the vocabulary they learnt during the "Ourselves" topic. They could identify baby, toddler, child, teenager, adult and elderly people. They could use this vocabulary confidently. Rainbows ordered the photos and explained to their friend the changes from each photo. They talked about babies needing adults to feed them and that to communicate they cry and put their arms out. They said toddlers learn to walk and can make different sounds to communicate. They said children can walk and move in different ways, can talk and communicate in different ways and they are taller than toddlers. The Rainbows could describe the changes in each picture and were inspired to try and complete the activity independently during provision time.
The Rainbows also focused on "the past" and were brought in a very strange object. First they held the bag and guessed what might be inside because it was very heavy. When they were shown the object they wondered what it could be. Lots of them thought it might be a type of door handle but some Rainbows guessed correctly that it was an iron! They compared the iron from the past to an iron in the present. The Rainbows found out it was made of metal, while the modern iron was mostly made from plastic. They talked about how the iron would get hot because it didn't have plug, and one Rainbow said they need to heat it up in flames. The rainbows all got to handle the iron (carefully) and told their friends it was very heavy and hard to push. They all decided that the modern iron was easier to use than the iron from the past.
