Beginning to use ‘what’ and ‘where’

Why is this important?
Children need to ask questions to become active learners (i.e. to take part in
their own learning). It is a critical tool in facilitating problem-solving too.

What to do
• What?

Share a book and take it in turns to point to something and ask ‘What is it?’
At snack-time (either with other children or pretend with toys) ask the child/toys
‘What shall we have to drink?’

Put puzzle pieces/toys/pictures into a bag.

Take it in turns to take one out and say ‘What have I got?’
• Where?

Again, share a book, taking it in turns to ask ‘Where’s the …?’

and then find it on the page.
Sort the clean washing together: put it into piles of socks, pants, trousers, etc.
or Mummy’s, Daddy’s, boy’s, etc. Take it in turns to choose something from the
basket and say ‘Where (do the) pants go?’

Use a variety of toys such as a doll’s house and furniture,

farmyard and animals,
playground and children, etc. Take it in turns to choose an item (e.g. bed) and
ask ‘Where (does the) bed go?’

  • 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
