Father's Day in the U.K.

Father's Day in the U.K.

I have tried to find out information about Father’s Day and material on Google which might prove useful. Father’s day in the U.K. falls on the third Sunday in June. The week before younger children are often given the opportunity to create a card - illustrations from two web sites showing 2D and 3D have been included. For the card they need to use positive phrases and words about their father. In my research I came across ‘15 Meaningful Father’s Messages’ which I thought would be useful. I have also included ‘How many words can you find in Father’s Day?’ with answers.

Did you know that everyone carries an invisible bucket that can be filled by doing kind things? This 20 minute assembly is based on the book ‘have you filled a bucket today?’ by Carol McCloud (an amazing book that I would recommend to any teacher). There are enough short speaking parts for a class of 30+ and the script is fully editable. Your children will introduce the concept of bucket filling and dipping to their audience. Through short drama pieces, they will demonstrate the benefits of bucket filling and the negative impact of bucket dipping. So, ask yourself, have you filled a bucket today?
