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.

Due to Lockdown in term 3, we did not get to complete our Narrative Writing focus and will continue with this in term 4.

We will look at narrative for our literacy focus this term. The basic purpose of narrative is to entertain, to gain and hold a readers' interest. However narratives can also be written to teach or inform, to change attitudes/social opinions eg soap operas and television dramas that are used to raise topical issues. Narrative stories set up one or more problems, which must eventually find a way to be resolved.
