Today in circle time, the Puffins were learning how to express their own opinions and to respect other people’s opinions. We all decided on 3 things we would like to change in our playground. We then used out sad face and happy face to discuss what the children’s opinions were. We also ensured if the children gave an opinion then they had to have a good reason for it.
‘I would like new seating because it’s too low for me’ Krista
‘I think we don’t need seats because they cost too much money’ Dora
‘I would love to have swings because they are fun’ Scarlett
‘I hate going on swings they are too high and you could kick someone in the playground’ Daisy B
In PSHE today we focused on how all families are different. We shared with each other who is in our family and discussed what is the same and different in each family. We then read The Family Book by Todd Parr exploring different type of families.
“It ok to have different people in your family we love each other its great to have other people.” Imogen
“All people are different and that’s ok same as families. We all love each othe.r” Maya
This week we have had lots of circle times and lessons focusing on choosing respect for Anti-Bullying week.
After discussing and understanding what bullying is we focused on how showing and giving respect can possibly prevent bullying.
