  1. Recap the new topic of ‘Past and Present’. Discuss what these words mean:
    - Past = something which has already happened.
    - Present = something happening
    at this very moment in time/it is happening right now (explain the misconception that ‘present’ doesn’t always mean a gift e.g. on their birthday).

    Also discuss what the future means.
    - Future =   something that will exist or happen in time to come.


Recap personal examples to each child of their past, present and future.
The example I will use in school:

- Last week, We were learning about old and new toys. This has already happened so it is in the past.
- Today it is Monday and we have come back to school. You are sitting at your desks right now listening to 
   me. This is the present as it is happening now.
- Tomorrow will not be Monday anymore. It will be Tuesday. We have to go to sleep and wake back up for
   the new day to begin. Because it hasn’t happened yet it is in the future.


2. Question: What has happened in your past? What will happen in your future? Give prompts where needed.


3. Use the ‘Hospital Scene Poster’ and ‘Hospital Scene Questions’ to get the children to begin to think about the NHS and hospitals.

4. Work through the ‘Hospitals – Then and Now Comparisons’ document. Make links to ‘then’ meaning ‘in the past’ and ‘now’ meaning ‘ in the present’.
