Term 1 - Me and My Community

In this unitthe children will explore who they are as individuals and learners. They will explore terminology to describe the people in their family and how they are related to each other. They will discuss family traditions, celebrations and how significant events are commemorated. The children will record these events through class books, (baby, school, family, grandparents/special friends) drawings and collages.
