This term we have been working on doing self portraits. The medium we used was water colour pencils. Here are 4 of our finished masterpieces!

Integrated learning - Dealing with Conflict

As part of our Integrated Learning this term we are looking at ways we can help people follow the CARE values in our school. Sophie has written a speech that she will do at the Kauri team assembly about standing up to bullies.

How to stand up to bullies by Sophie Hardie
My speech is about how to stand up to a bully and how to prevent being bullied. Firstly if you know your bully try and talk to them about how you fell and solve the problem together. If you think someone is trying to bully you into silence don't hide and don’t listen to them, a good tip to always carry with you if you are being bullied is to not hide but to make sure your voice is being heard. If you are being bullied online you can make a new account or ignore the user that is bullying you. If you are not being bullied but your friend is, try not to get involved but give your friend helpful suggestions. Being scared of bullies is completely common but it's something you shouldn't hide, yes we all have that moment when we get our feelings hurt but it's ok. Getting help from your mum or teacher can really help or even talking about it to a close friend. If you do bully people remember treat others the way you want to be treated. Remember don't hide be heard also remember don't be a bully because no one likes bullies.

Integrated Learning

Room 8 has been looking at conflict in the playground and around the school. We have decided to make picture books for our Year 1buddies that teach us good ways to deal with conflict. Watch this space for some great examples of our writing :)
