K1 Bedtime routines

K1 have been learning about bedtime routines. They were able to discuss some of their own bedtime routines and they understood why it is important for them to do these activities before bedtime.
This inspired us to create our own bedtime routine posters. The students each had their own poster where they stuck pictures of themselves doing their bedtime routines such as cleaning their teeth or reading a bedtime story.
They were also asked to put the routines in order and place them onto their posters. This enabled them to understand why it is important to have a structure to their bedtime routine and this allowed them to use their thinking skills.
