English Activity – Grade 1 (Community Helper)


Community helpers are people who have occupations that make life better for all around them. The policemen and policewomen who keep our communities safe, the doctors and nurses who help us all stay healthy, the teachers who help students learn, the postal carriers who deliver mail come rain or snow- these are people in professions that directly impact the lives of others. As an extension to the English curriculum, the students of grade 1 had a role play on community helpers. The students came dressed up as different community helpers – teachers, doctors, chef, lawyers etc. The students also spoke about themselves and told about the different ways in which they would like to help the people around them. The junior Orchidians were dressed up beautifully and were excited to be a part of the activity.
