We are very lucky in our class to have parents from many different parts of the world and cultural backgrounds. We are even luckier that those that can are happy to come in and share their expertise and knowledge.

This week we held a maths workshop pictures of which will feature in our website post next week for part three of our numeracy focus. We also had two wonderful learning experiences as two of our Mum’s came in to share what happens during Thanksgiving and Eid Traditional celebrations and why they are important to their families. Authentic Experiential Learning Experiences are very valuable for our learners.

The experiences inspired the Invisible Tigers to make connections between the traditions as examples of how families have elements that don’t change and how this contributes to the identity of a family group. We were then able to follow on from that by looking at the elements of family that do change such as moving country, the birth of new siblings and how these more fluid aspects of family life impact upon our identity and who we are. The big idea is becoming more clear now for our learners that who they are is very influenced by the family group they are in and that this itself is influenced by traditions that are ongoing from the past and new things that happen.
