The aim of this activity is to discover and report on views of nature and the surrounding environment from windows in different places, where different languages are spoken, around the world. ‘View from my window’ allows children to draw comparisons between a favourite or familiar view from a window, with one enjoyed by a friend or family member living in, or outside of the UK. The activity also creates the additional opportunity for a parent / guardian to be involved in their child’s learning and support their understanding of the heritage language and country. Experiences can be shared that not only bring different languages spoken at home into the classroom, but the different places where family members have previously, or continue to live.
