Year 3 

Celebrations 

This project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about celebrations. Learning may focus and different types of celebrations that take place and who may celebrate them. It could look at how people celebrate different events differently in other parts of the world.  

 

Let’s Wonder:                                                                              

How are birthdays celebrated around the world?  

India China America Africa etc.. maybe there's a particular country they would like to find out about. Create fact files to show the similarities and differences between them. 

 

Let’s Create:                                                                         

Create a board game that focuses on celebrations. Think about what they can learn from it? Think about how to play the game. Is it going to be a game like Monopoly or Snakes and ladders? Are they going to need a dice? Cards? Characters? etc…. 

 

Be Active: 

Why not play a game of hopscotch? Can’t find any chalk? Use a stone from the garden. Raining? Build an indoor den and have an imaginary celebration with their toys. 

Recommendation at least 2 hours of exercise a week. 

 

Time to Talk:  

Look through old photos of previous celebrations them and their family have taken part in. What can they remember happened?  Why do they and their families celebrate the way they do? 

 

Understanding Others and Appreciating differences: 

How many different types of celebrations are there? Who celebrates Christmas? St Patricks? St George? St David?  Easter? Eid? Diwali? Chinese new year? And how? Which celebrations have they taken part in? What usually happens?
