Relationships

To identify special people, what makes them special and how to care for them.

 

Could you discuss these questions with your child?

 

Who are the special people in your life?

What makes them special?

Describe ways that people care for each other.

How can you help the people that look after you?

 

You could make little cards to send to special people in your life telling them why they are special.  I think that they would appreciate it now more than ever.

 

My example

My son - is special - he is good company, funny, teaches me things, he is kind 

 

My card would say

 

To Jack

 

Thank you for being you!  You are special to me because you make me laugh, learn me new things and you are very kind.

 

Love from Mum xxx

 

I'll draw some pictures of some cars on the card because he loves cars.

Week commencing 20.4.20

Discuss these questions with your child - they are to encourage them to form and express their own opinions.

 

Do they agree/disagree?  Why/why not?  Think of as many reasons as you can.

 

Girls should be allowed to watch more TV than boys.  

Boys should be allowed to have more sweets than girls.

Girls shouldn't have to wear school uniform.

Boys should be allowed extra playtime.

 

To extend this further you could make a poster with your child about one of the statements above or another one that you might have come up with during your discussion.  They could draw and write reasons why they agree with the statement.
