Help young learners to discover all about themselves with these enticing lesson ideas

Learning about ourselves is a fundamental part of childhood development, especially as pupils start to ask questions about who they are and how they are the same, or different, from others. As such, the start of the academic year - when everybody is getting to know one another – is the ideal time to get stuck into an “all about me” topic.

We’ve gathered together the best topic overviews, lesson plans and engaging activities to help your young learners find out more about themselves.

Planning resources and lesson ideas

Kick-start your planning with this single-page medium-term outline, which is packed full of engaging activity suggestions for each area of learning. 

Ensure that your lessons cover all development areas with these clear topic webs, where teaching is guided by “I will be” statements. For a more thorough approach, use this detailed six-week plan to study the entire theme, from physical features to emotional reactions.

Get parents involved in their children’s learning with this simple booklet, which is designed to be completed at home in order to give teachers a more rounded understanding of their pupils’ interests.

All About Me Zigzag Book

A simple zigzag book to cut out and assemble with cues for learners to start wrtiting and learning about themselves. I used this at the beginning of the new school year to help me to get to know my children, but could be used at any time when children are learning all about themselves :-)
