Living and Learning: I use good manners

Friday 23 September 2022

This week, our Living and Learning has been about using our manners.

What are manners?

Manners are words and actions that we can do to help us be nice and respectful to others. It is important to be polite and use our manners whenever possible.

We looked at some pictures and talked about what good manners might be happening.

The boy is saying please can you pass me the salt and pepper,” said Bea.

“The person that dropped their apple might say sorry for bumping into the girl carrying the books,” said Orianne.

“The girl with the chocolate cake might say thankyou for sharing the cake,” said Joshua.

We thought about how we use our manners in school and at home.

“We say thank you the Julie when she serves us our lunch,” said Lily.

“I say thank you to my brother when he shares his toys with me,” said Hattie.

“I say please when I want to join in with my friends game,” said Max.

We also watched and listened to the story How Rude a a story about manners.(This is a YouTube link. Top tip for watching YouTube with your child: go to the settings cog along the play bar and turn off autoplay – this avoids an inappropriate clip coming up automatically, and helps to discourage your child from passively watching clip after clip.)
