The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to gain a better understanding of their own family. Learning may focus on what different makeup of families, what traditions your family has, stories linked to your family etc.
Family: - This is time to find out about their family and traditions they follow. Ask them to think about: Who they live with? How many adults? How many children? Can they sort their family members into height order? Who is the tallest? Who is the shortest? Is the tallest family member the eldest family member? If they drew around all their family members' hands; could they count in 5s? What if they drew around their feet? Could they count in 2s? Ask think about one family member they would love to interview. They could be a family member that lives with them or a family member that lives somewhere else. Can they write down some questions they would like to ask them? Have they got a pet? Can they draw or paint a picture of their family? Can they talk about their picture to a family member?
Self portrait: - Ask your child to think about which materials they use to draw? Can they find different materials around the house to help?
Create a card: - Ask your child to design a card for someone in their family. It can be a birthday card, thank you card or a card to tell someone how much they love them!
Family tree: - Look at photographs of your family members and discuss where they would go on a family tree. Have you met everyone? Is there anyone you could interview and find out more about? Design a personal coat of arms shield for the family: - Find out what a coat of arm shield means. Ask them to begin to think about their design. What could they draw? What does it mean to them ? Ask them to think about the colours and shapes. Maybe if they have some cardboard around the house they could make a shield to give to a family member.
Create a booklet all about the family: - Can they name the people in their family and write sentences about them? Who are they? What do they call them? What do they like or dislike? Why are they special to them? Maybe they could get a photograph or draw a family member before they write about them.
News Reporter for half a day: -Their challenge is to interview family members and find things they like and dislike? Can they write down things they like and dislike? Can they compare these to someone else in their family? In your interview they could create flashcards with words such as: colour, clothes, food, drinks, books, places, music and then ask a family member to pick a flash card and talk about their likes and dislikes.
