In our circle time this afternoon, we imagined that we were in charge of shipwrecked travellers stuck on a desert island. We had to think about what rules we might put in place to support everyone’s needs.
To start with we had ideas like only watching certain things on tv and looking after the environment. We then discussed our school rules how they are to keep everyone safe or allow everyone to succeed. We talked about how we can make rules positive (You should rather than Don’t). Finally we came up with some new rules that would support our community. We came up with:
- You must play outside for some of the time (we thought this would be good for our health and making friends).
- Everyone should have a bed, and make them for each other (we liked the idea of everyone helping you make things you didn’t have).
- You must say nice things to each other.
