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.

We begin counting forward and back to 10, then to 20, then to 100. Within our range that we are learning we learn the number before and after. We learn facts to 5 such as 1+4, 0+5, 2+3, 3+2 etc. We need instant recall of these facts/number bonds. We then move to learning facts with 5 eg 5+2, 5+4 and then facts to 10 eg 7+3, 6+4.
Learning then moves to doubles 3+3 firstly to ten and then to 20. We learn to use our doubles in relation to 1/2s and subtraction eg 6-3.

At NE level we are learning that the picture in the book relates to the text, the difference between letters and words, and how we can use the picture and the beginning and end sound of the word to help us decipher the text. We point to each word as we read them. This helps us to recognise different words. We learn about the different parts of the book eg front cover, title page back cover, author and illustrator. We slowly start learning some high frequency words (HFW) such as I, is, to, the, am, and etc. Sometimes we write them on a white board in reading.

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.
