Respect in E7...

Our school values are really important and underpin what we do and how we act here at Eastern Hutt School.  One of them is respect and we have been learning all about what it means to us in our classroom.

We watched this great clip about Respect ...


We used our 'Thinking Hats' and came up with ideas about what Respect might look like, sound like and feel like at school ...


We have started thinking about our class charter and what sort of classroom environment we want to have in E7.  In particular, we talked about what respect in our class might look like, and what is important to us ...


After only a week at school, the children have a good understanding of what they think is okay (or not okay) and what they want out of their school experience.  These types of discussions are invaluable, and it is wonderful to provide the opportunity for the children to talk about what is important to them.  Watch this space to see our Class Charter evolve...
