Popcorn: People Who Help Us Resources
People Who Help Us is a series of four books in the Popcorn range that introduces children to people whose job it is to help the community and may work in the emergency services and covers the Citizenship topic: People who help us. The books can also be used in literacy as they feature many examples of report text, such as contents, non-chronological text, captions, index, glossary, and more.
The downloadable resources that support this series comprise teacher’s notes and a photocopiable worksheet for each title.
