Each week CDEC are releasing via email a series of activities based on the cultural and natural world around us for children to work on with their parents or teachers. The CDEC team hopes that what they are providing will be helpful to the community, but mainly to families in these challenging times.
Now we are in the school's Easter holidays, we want to share with you some ideas for making the most of your daily exercise, ways to get your family talking and questioning, and thinking about Easter in different parts of the world.
Make a journey stick
When out on a walk, why not make a journey stick? Journey sticks have been around for many years – we know they were used by Native Americans and Aboriginal people to share stories from their travels and also as a type of map for someone else to follow.
Hometalk from Dialogue Works
Thoughtful conversations for families can lead to you exploring interesting ideas. Take a look at this guidance from Dialogue Works to see how you can help your children continue to learn to question and be curious.
