Week 2 LO: I tell you about the natural process of growing from young to old and understand that this is not in my control
Look at pictures of a baby, toddler, teenager, adult to elderly person. They should name each stage.
(They should be familiar with the vocabulary from the science lesson)
Ask them to describe two changes they can visibly see that happen to an elderly person. Share ideas. Ask how our bodies might change and ask them to think about what other changes might happen, e.g. bodies become slower, old people run less but might get wiser and kinder.
Make the point that change is a natural process as we get older and we have no control over it. We will all become old and all grow from a baby, to a toddler, to a child, to a teenager, to an adult to an old person.
Look at photographs of their relatives. Describe who is in the photo. What do they like/ respect/ love about them?
Make leaf mobiles. Using a leaf template - A4 size
draw a picture of an older person who is special to them. On the back of the leaf template, they write two things they respect/like or love about this person
