This term we have two topics - All About Me and Let's Celebrate! 

No Outsiders Ethos

The aim in EYFS is to introduce the No Outsiders ethos using very simplistic language: we are all different and we are all friends. There is nothing more complicated in the EYFS plans than the message that it's ok to be you and you may be different to me, but that's ok too.

You Choose encourages children to choose their favourite place to live, favourite transport, favourite food etc and shows that we all like different things. This is explored further in Red Rockets and Rainbow Jelly, where characters Nick and Sue are shown liking different things throughout the book, but conclude by saying they like each other. Hello Hello shows different animals with a range of shapes and colours who all say 'hello' and no one is left out. The Family Book shows children that there are many types of families - and then we draw our own family. Mommy, Mama and Me allows children to understand some families have two mums (or two dads); we talk about the things Mommy and Mama do with their child and ask if our own families do similar things (go to the park, drink juice, kiss goodnight). Finally, Blue Chameleon shows a lonely chameleon trying to make friends by changing shape and colour; he thinks you have to look like someone else to be friends. At the end, Chameleon realises you can be yourself and you don't have to change.
