Last year a new head started at the kids school, shes very much into parents getting involved with their childs education which is fine with me :) Part of this is each term they have a topic theme and they have to make something at home based on this. At the end of term all the work is put on display in the hall and the parents can go and view it.
Caitlins topic was 'Family and people who help us' We made a scrapbook of photos of the family and Caitilin wrote on each one who they were and how they were related to her. Was funny because she wouldn't believe me that her nanny was my Mummy, and that her Granny was my Granny and her Nannys mummy lol. A lot for a kid to take in I suppose.
On the 'people who help us' side we made a fire engine from a cerial box. Caitlin wasn't too pleased with it in the end but think she has quite high standards for a 5 year old lol.
