Our Key Competency this term is Relating to Others.In your homework books is activities to work on during the term.I have posted them below.

Say “Bless you” to a person when they sneeze.

Ask “Can I help?” when Mum or Dad are working around the house.
Read a bedtime story to someone in your family.

Hold the dining chair out for your Mum when she sits down to dinner.
