Different Families, Same Love

This week in our assemblies we have been learning about the diversity in families, and that although all healthy relationships look different, they are characterised by the same thing - love! We drew faces for members of imaginary families and matched them together. Our learning objectives this week were:

  • that families are important for children growing up because they can give love, security and stability.
  • the characteristics of healthy family life, commitment to each other, including in times of difficulty, protection and care for children and other family members, the importance of spending time together and sharing each other’s lives.
  • that stable, caring relationships, which may be of different types, are at the heart of happy families, and are important for children’s security as they grow up.
