This links to the Rights Respecting
Article 28- Every child has the right to an education.
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.
During our Literacy, we will be learning the story of the gingerbread man. We will practise the story with actions to help us learn it by heart.
