This session comprises two very simple tasks: matching objects to the young children who would usually play with them, followed by a follow-up task, this time on the theme of wheeled transport where children have to sequence 3 images and match them to who would play with them: toddler, 3 year old and 5 year old. The aim is to develop confidence in talking about time within a very familiar context.
Having focused on children’s own toys that they play with at the moment, move to thinking of other people’s toys, including toys they no longer play with. Activity 1 asks Who plays with these toys? on slide 2. So show slides 3, 4 and 5 and ask children to predict the age of the children who would play with them. Then show slides 6, 7 and 8 to confirm whether they are right or not.
This is a relatively simple task to give children confidence.
Activity 2: Then ask them to work on matching 3 pictures on the theme of How we move to the appropriately aged child who would have played with them. Start with slide 9 asking for ideas; show slide 10;
