Learning Project - to be done throughout the week: Viewpoint
The project this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about different viewpoints. Learning may focus on physical viewpoints in terms of what you can see outside of the window at home, what others can see looking into your home and then progress onto personal viewpoints and of others.
Using your senses: Ask your child to pick a window in the house. Ask them to stand there for a few minutes and take a look at what they can see and write or draw them down. Now ask them to try this activity again but this time ask them what they can hear? Write or draw these down. Ask your child to help find a piece of material in the house and then blindfold them. What can they see? Which sense do they use now? Ask them to now cover their ears and look outside the window. What do they hear?
A ‘feely bag’ - find six objects, such as a hairbrush, a tube of toothpaste, a packet of biscuits, an ice cream scoop, a packet of tissues and a wooden spoon. You will also need something to act as a blindfold. Imagine what it would be like if you could never see because you were blind and you had to learn to rely on your other senses instead. Play with a partner and see who guesses most of the objects.
Find a mirror in the house: What can they see? Imagine if they were able to walk into the mirror. What do they think you would see? Listen to the story ‘Through the Magic Mirror’ by Anthony Browne. Look at the illustrations in the book and discuss what is different. Can they create a story similar to ‘Through the Mirror’? Draw a story map first and plan their story. Using their story map, create their story and remember to think about your illustrations.
Find a place in the house. Look around what they can see. Sketch what they can see. What is on the left hand side of them? What is the right hand side of them? Does it change if they sit in another part of the house? Make a list of all the things and compare.
Read the stories: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella. The characters will be going to see Judge Jenny. Can they persuade Judge Jenny to see the story from their point of view. Watch these links to help Judge Jenny to decide. Now it’s their turn… read the stories Little Red Riding Hood, Three Little Pigs and Gingerbread Man. Imagine they are going to be one of the characters from the story and an adult is going to be Judge Jenny. What would they say to Judge Jenny? How could they persuade her?
