They share information about their family, where they come from, how many people are in their family, etc. Children bring in a photo of their family and all family photos are displayed on the identity wall in the school. Lesson Three – This Is My Community Children engage in a lesson about the community of Balbriggan. The older classes go on visits to the local community. Children create a display entitled My Community. They draw a picture or take a photograph of themselves in their...
