Did you know that the Greek language identifies 4 types of Love and has 4 main words to describe them...
We took this and decided to celebrate Valentine's day in a more simple way with our children... It is normally a day that we are widely exposed to in a commercial way. But it's also an important day to discuss the love we have towards each other, whether than be the love shared between parent & children, friendship love, neighbourly love etc.
We had been doing lots of prep work since the beginning of February with our decorations and the lovely little craft items that the children were excited about making for their families. We constantly heard children chat amongst each other about making things for mummy or daddy.
We ended our celebration of 'Love Day' with a buffet of yummy lunch. This gave the children an opportunity to practice decision/choice making, controlling their immediate environment as well as gave them the opportunity to practice self help skills. In line with the Early Years Learning Framework here are a few of the elements we covered as an example but certainly not a comprehensive one:
