Dear Parents/ Carers
We are writing to let you know about our forthcoming series of blogs which will help support families and children learning together at home.
Sightlines Initiative is an organisation working with educators, families and others interested in creative and imaginative approaches to education. Through these blogs we aim to provide an inspiring resource to families, so that home learning can be an exciting and joyful experience.
from 'Traps & Tenderness': Viviana & Federico
The blogs will appear once a week on our website and on social media, and will include some ideas for you and your children to explore at home.
We would like to share experiences of children and families in the blogs and invite you to participate by sending us your photographs, videos, notes from your family explorations. We’d be able to share some of your experiences on our blogs and on our social media pages – this will all help build a lively picture of parents and children around the country imaginatively exploring, learning and being together. We are in an enforced situation, but we can maximise the joy and playfulness and new perspectives which are hidden in our everydays.
Some of the things we anticipate that the explorations will include are:
- working with different learning spaces at home (including the kitchen)
- materials and imagination
- story telling
- den building
- dressing up
- working with children's questions and ideas.

Thank you for joining, and we hope that you are all doing well.
To send us photographs of your children's engagements at home, together with your descriptions and reflections, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Learning Together at Home - material' as the Subject.
images as attachments please - preferably jpgs under 2mb.
Remember to include your childs name(s) and age(s.) as well as your name and location. This saves some cross-checking and possible confusion here!
[Do keep a separate note of this - the page does not email a confirmation.]
All the best, Robin, Cath, Liz, Chris.
