Understanding and using pronouns: ‘I’, ‘you’ and ‘we’


Why is this important?
Pronouns are words that replace the name of a person (e.g. instead of the
speaker saying ‘Mummy would like a cup of tea’, Mummy refers to herself as
‘I’). When asking someone else a question, ‘you’ is used instead of the name
of the person (e.g. ‘Did you see the car?’ instead of ‘Did Sammy see the car?’).
This is another step in the development of grammar.

What to do
• Set up a pretend tea party.
• Gather together cups, plates, plastic cutlery, foods, pretend kettle and teapot, etc.
• Play modelling pronouns, e.g.

‘I want some tea.’
‘Sunil, do you want some tea?’
• Set up situations where you can model ‘I’ and ‘you’ and then ask a question, e.g.

Adult: ‘I put my coat on, what are you doing Sunil?’
Child: ‘I put coat on.’

  • Through our Christian school and ethos, we all aim to believe in ourselves, each other, our teachers, leaders and parents. With reflection and prayer, we trust in God that our prayers will be heard. We know that every child is a child of Jesus, treating everyone with respect and dignity that they deserve.

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
    Matthew 7:7


  • We aim to build our pupils’ and teachers’ confidence, delight in their teaching & learning and discipline in seeking wisdom; gaining the truth, knowledge, understanding and skills they will need in their everyday lives. We offer a broad and inspiring curriculum that nurtures emotional intelligence, creativity and remembering of important knowledge. We teach and learn collaboratively leading to our pupils developing the life skills of learning.

    For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;
    Proverbs 2:6


  • We aim to be the best we can be. Whilst nurturing our pupils’ and staff, we encourage and drive them to aspire to achieve their hopes and dreams. We are honest in the fact that this will take hard work, perseverance and resilience.

    For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
    Jeremiah 29:11


  • Above all we aim to show compassion to ourselves and each other. By developing strong relationships and friendships we develop a true understanding of each other.

    ‘Love thy neighbour…’
    Luke 10:28


  • We are a family. We show compassion for all members of our community irrespective of gender, ethnicity, religion or sexuality. We strive to be ‘courageous advocates’ for our local, national and global community.

    There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
    Galatians 3:28
