The Importance of Family this Father’s Day

The definition of the word family can mean many things. However, we can perhaps agree that words to describe family should include; love, compassion and support.

The past few months have thrown families together and enforced shared time and space. This can create opportunities to cement relationships, but can also put a strain on difficult ones. Let us use Father’s Day as a time to reflect on those things that we love about our family and those things we are grateful for in them. In our preschooler’s Additional Home Learning we have suggested making an “I Value You” tree. This is where we consider the things we value about members of our family and write them on leaves/hearts and place them on our tree. We can then re-read them when needed!
