This unit encourages children to look beyond their immediate family when thinking about people who care for us and for others - from an ode to the lollipop lady to a story featuring a paramedic and a non-fiction text about the founder of Khalsa Aid. Resources to support children in making connections between the texts can be found in the ‘pulling it all together’ pack, as can a suggested list of books also linked to the theme, which could be read as a class.
