Adult directed activity UW  (Understanding of the World)

This month it is Marston Green Infant Academy’s 50th Celebration. Discuss the different celebrations that you have as a family. Ask the children if they can remember how you celebrate them. (sending cards, giving presents, special food, decorations, special clothes, special traditions/activities that you do as a family at that time, linked to religion/time of the year)

Do you know anybody that has celebrated a 50th birthday? Celebrating 50 years is special because it’s a long time. Tell them that the school was built in 1971 and that was 50 years ago, so we are celebrating the school being 50 years old. Did they make a card to celebrate? Do they know anybody that has been to our school when they were younger? Relate that to it being in the past, it’s history, before they were born, before mums & dads were born.

Outdoor Activity
We are 50
This year our school turns 50! Whilst out in your garden or on a walk, see if you can find anything showing '50'. It could be a door number, a sign, you could even make your own 50 using natural resources. Get creative! Send us pictures of you with your 50 and we can put them into a big birthday collage.
