This week, our Living and Learning statement is all about manners. We’ve been learning about when and how to use good manners. The children have been encouraged to think about situations when they should use their manners in school and at home.
In particular, we’ve discussed how to behave if you accidentally knock or bump into someone in the playground. We all have accidents. It’s important to let the other person know that it wasn’t on purpose, to say sorry and check that they’re okay.
When do you expect your child to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ at home? If there’s an accident, are they expected to say sorry? Manners matter!
