This week’s homework is Creative.
I can show what I know about a festival.
Around this time, many children in school will celebrate or will have celebrated a religious festival of some sort. This might be the Christian festival of Christmas (of course, celebrated by many non-Christians in the UK, too). It might also be the Sikh and Hindu festival Diwali, the Jewish festival of Hanukkah, or the Chinese New Year festival – which is early in the new year. There are lots of other festivals and celebrations which you and your child might want to reflect on. Research more festivals.
We invite children to respond to the sentence above – they might include a recount (like a diary entry), pictures, or an interview (perhaps in a script). Your child might also choose to research a completely unknown festival or they might even think about creating a brand new festival, one that everyone will celebrate.
