Talking about going away and what needs to happen before the holiday helps children to develop skills in planning, sequencing and measurement.
As you talk about what you’ll be doing and the order you’ll do it, your child will be learning about sequencing and predicting. As they explore the sequence of events they are exploring time and how long events take to complete.
Talking together about the jobs to do and when to do them helps children to explore the different ways we can measure time. Time can be measured by a clock, with numbers or by counting how many days till something happens.
