Week 7

This week in M1 we are going to be focusing in on our Keeping Ourselves Safe Unit. You will have received an email from the school earlier in the term outlining the programme. The Main areas we will be talking about are:

I am unique: Tino taonga koe
For safety reasons students need to know their name, where they live, and the names of the people they live with. When they can verbalise their feelings confidently, they can report times when they feel safe and unsafe. 
My body is my own: Kei a koe to mana tinana
They understand the names of body parts and that no one should touch their genitals unless it is for health reasons. Students consider touch that they like, touch that hurts and touch that is confusing. 
Dealing with unwanted behaviour and touch: Tāu e ahu ai ki te whanonga me te pā kino
Students need to be able to say “no” confidently, move away, and report what has happened. They learn the difference between good secrets and bad secrets and know how to tell. 
Adults who help: Ngā kaiāwhina pakeke
Students learn who they can trust to help them. Together with the people they live with students develop safety rules and strategies to help them keep safe. 

A Home Connection book is included as part of the programme and will accompany your child home after the first lesson. I will mark the relevant page to discuss with your child that night. Please return your Home Connection book in their book, so I can remark after each lesson so you can keep dialogue open with your child at home should they bring it up. There are a few short tasks to do with your child. As our readers need to be in for stocktake this week, it is the perfect time to be doing this instead. 

We will also be researching more into our personal inquiries around Sustainability now that we are through the bulk of our end of year assessments. 

Thanks to those who have sent their costumes in for the Y1 production in Week 8. If you are struggling to find items, please let me know. We have had several spare Hawaiian shirts sent in for those who may need them. 

We hope you can make the show. There are two opportunities to view it: 
5 Dec at 9:30am in the hall or 6 Dec at 2:00pm 

Reminder this Friday:

Well done to Isla Thompson! She rocked the Sole Movement show this weekend with her Hip Hop number to Thriller.

If your child is participating in something exciting this term or being recognised for their accomplishments outside of school at a prize-giving etc, please let me know so we can all celebrate together!

Have a great week everyone!
