|Learning Project - to be done throughout the week||
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.
Who is in your child’s immediate family? What other relatives do they have? How does their family link together? How many people do they have in their family? Why not spend time looking through old photos and talking about
the people in their families. What family stories can they tell? How is life different to their parents? grandparents?
Create a piece of artwork entitled ‘Family’. This could be a drawing, a self portrait, a sculpture or collage. Could they copy another artist's style? Which materials have they chosen to use and why? How do they feel about their piece of artwork? What would they change or not? Family portraits.
Go Noodle with the family or have a family workout. Fancy a dance? There are lots of dance videos they could try. Dance. Check these videos as they are on Youtube and may contain content you may is inappropriate for your child. Maybe try some Yoga. Recommendation at least 2 hours of exercise a week.
Perhaps they could play a board game, facetime a member of their family they have not seen this week, enjoy a family indoor picnic or have a family dinner.
Discuss how their family is different to other people’s families. Discuss whether all families are the same? Does it matter?
Find out what music their family members enjoy. Do they like the same music? What is their favourite song? They could listen to different pieces of music together with their family. Do they like/dislike any particular types of music and why? Can they Identify the instruments they can hear and describe how the music makes them feel? Why not get them to listen to some of the classics?
