Family Trees

The children have been working hard constructing their family trees. The children are really enjoying finding out information about their families.
Some of the children were confused about the positioning of some their family members on the tree template. I have sent home a page in your child's folder which will make it easier for me to help the children position the names in their correct place. It would be great if you could help your child fill this in with the information they already have.
Thank you again for your help and support with this. Have a lovely evening.

Sarah :)

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),
We are currently working on a unit on families and family history. Your child will be learning more about his/her own family history. We will be focusing on the immediate family, family trees, family names, and traditions. We will be discussing traditional and non-traditional families. Families that include step-parents, brothers, sisters, adoption and foster care.
This week we will be working on family trees. There are a few things each child will need to know for this. I would greatly appreciate if you could discuss and record the following with your child:
·         Family names,
·         Birth year and
·         Birth place (county/country)
of themselves, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.
*If your child has more than one set of parents, you may want to send names for both sets of parents and grandparents.
The children are welcome to bring in pictures of their families if they like. If any of the above information is not available to you, don’t worry.
Thank you so much for all of your support!

Kind regards,
Sarah & Ronan
