Celebrating Differences


What your child will be learning about:

  • Celebrating difference - in the family and beyond

  • Kindness and the difference it can make to everyone

  • Influence and pressure of social media


What your child can think about - or for you to talk about, together:

  • Do I have to like or enjoy the same things as my friends and family?
  • How am I different from my friends?
  • How can I make a difference if I see someone in a tricky situation?
  • How can I make sure that I am safe and happy on social media?

Activity 1- Time to Talk 


How well do you know the people in your life? Friends and family often have things in common, but we are all unique and individual, so there might be lots of things that are different about you and the other people in your family.

It would be so boring if we were all the same. Find someone you know who you’d like to get to know even better and work through the questions on the worksheet together.


This activity might spark some conversations or even disagreements between you - so remember, respecting other people’s opinions is really important. Enjoy the differences and practise your skills of being polite and kind to each other.
