During the first few weeks at school; the children will be settling in and learning the different routines.  The children will be exploring the classroom and choosing lots of different jobs and making new friends. 


We will be talking about how to respect our school, our responsibilities and how to follow the rules. 

This links to the Rights Respecting

Article 28- Every child has the right to an education.


Our class charter focuses on Article 24: Every child has the right to the best possible health. We have discussed ways to respect our right.

Our key question for the term is:


    Can you be the same and  different at the same time?

Is it OK to be different?



This will be discussed through stories and a range of activities that celebrate our similarities and differences. Our Rights Respecting focus is ‘Proud to be’.


During our PSED learning, we will be reading ‘The Colour Monster’.


The story is about a monster who changes colour depending on how he is feeling. We will be exploring each of the feelings in detail.
