These home learning packs on ‘special people’ focus on the positive ways that people care for one another, especially in families and friendships. They encourage pupils to consider the most important aspects of maintaining positive relationships and reflect on how this can be challenging at times of change or uncertainty.
These lessons are particularly useful for home learning at the moment — while many young people are unable to see the friends and family they are used to seeing often in face-face situations. Pupils are supported to talk about close relationships, recognise how their special people care for them and show how they too can care for others. They also encourage pupils to express worries about missing friends and family, and consider some positive ways to manage these feelings.
