Identity Maps

When we talk about ‘identity’ we mean all the things that make a person who they are. Use this PowerPoint and/ or the home learning sheets to explore and discuss the things that make up your identity. You could even make an Identity Map to show this, which you could then share with others!

Our names are so important- they give us our identity. Others may have the same name but no one ‘wears’ your name like you! Explore what your name means using this PowerPoint or share what you’ve learned about your name using the home learning sheets and create a name bookmark to celebrate your name!

Shields

A shield can quite often include a coat of arms, which is traditionally unique to an individual person, a family, a city or a country. They are often seen on buildings, gates and flags. Use this PowerPoint and/or the home learning sheets to spend some time as a family thinking about the things that are special to you before designing a shield with a coat of arms for either your family or for the individuals within your family. Take a look at some of our examples to help inspire you!

Identity Bags

Sharing information about the things we like and the things that are important to us is a great way to show family and friends who we are. Using this activity, why not create your own Identity Bag filled with items that show who you are or help to tell your story. When completed, the bag could even be shared with others (at a safe distance of course) over the phone or by video call!
