We are discussing growing and changing in class at the moment. We are looking at important milestones in our lives. If you have the time, could you have a short discussion with your child about the time when they were born, when they got their first tooth, said their first word and started to walk. Thank you :)
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.
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
·Birth year and
·Birth place (county/country)
of themselves, parents, 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.
