Oracy task – Why my family are special to me!


For today’s activity we would ask you to gather photographs of the different people in your family.


Throughout this topic we explore superheroes, what their powers are, how they are special and how they help others. We encourage the children to realise that everyday people are also special, have good qualities and often help others around them. We would like to introduce this be encouraging them to look at the people closest to them, their family.


Whilst looking at each photograph individually encourage your child to think about what makes each person in their family special and why they are special to them. As previously mentioned in the helpful hints and tips, if your child finds it challenging to think of their own suggestions, try to give your own input first to help direct their thoughts. Stick each photograph onto a piece of paper and write down the reasons that your child suggests.
