Here are some ideas to help you:

  • You could draw a picture of yourself and introduce me to pictures of your family and pets. Can you add names too?
  • Tell me about your favourite things e.g. favourite stories, toys, games, animals, colour, clubs you attend, hobbies,   tv programmes, sports or food.
  • Who are the friends that you like to work and play with at school?
  • What are you looking forward to in Year 2?
  • You and your parents/ carers could write me a special message telling me something you would like me to know about you.
