Boss for a Week

Over rhe last week Grade 1B and 1C have been learning all about families. We have shared family photos, read stories about different families, written about what we like doing with our families and talked about jobs in the family. One of the children’s favourite activities was reading the story ‘Boss for a Week.’ After reading the children were asked to come up with 2 of their own rules if they were the boss of the house. Some of their ideas are quite entertaining, we hope you enjoy them! 

After reading the other rules would you change your rules?

If so what would you add to your rules?

Hello Hector

hector

Over the last 2 weeks the grade one children have been learning about all kinds of safety in Rotation. During Rotation with Miss Hunichen we have focussed on Cyber Bullying and how to be safe when online.

In order to do this we have been using a series of short videos called Hector’s World. So far we have watched the first 2 videos from the ‘Keeping Your Personal Information Safe’ section. There are 3 more videos in this section which the children will view at school over the rest of this term.

You might like to view the first 2 videos again with your child and then discuss the story line with them.
