June is Pride Month in the UK and around the world. The month is all about celebrating love in all its forms. This resource pack explores families and how all families are founded in love, no matter what they look like.
The activities will teach pupils that family units can vary, from blended families, single-parent families, families where parents are the same sex or families that have a mum and dad. They will draw pictures or create family trees showing who they live with and discuss images that challenge stereotypes of what a family should look like.
This KS2 resources pack includes:
- Different families image cards
- My family writing task
- PowerPoint - teaching slides
National Curriculum Objectives
Pupils should know that other families, either in school or in the wider world, sometimes look different from their family, but that they should respect those differences and know that other children’s families are also characterised by love and care.
