Relating to others
Relating to others is about interacting effectively with a diverse range of people in a variety of contexts. This competency includes the ability to listen actively, recognise different points of view, negotiate, and share ideas.
Students who relate well to others are open to new learning and able to take different roles in different situations. They are aware of how their words and actions affect others. They know when it is appropriate to compete and when it is appropriate to co-operate. By working effectively together, they can come up with new approaches, ideas, and ways of thinking.
This is the maths unit on time. The children will be introduced to time and learn to tell the time to the hour and half past.
They will also sequence time and events in their lives.
We use a range of writing progressions

2. Creative Writing (responding to a variety of provocations)
3. Storytelling Schools Writing (focusing on story structure, creativity, oral language, drama, etc).

This term we look at poetry, reading, analysing and writing poetry.
Our objectives are to learn what makes a good poem and about some poetic conventions used by poets in their writing, so that we can use some of the same conventions in our own writing.
We also aim to expand our enjoyment of poetry by understanding it more and recognising some of the reasons poets say things the way they do.
