1) So that people don't get hurt or hurt others.
2) So that the silly actions of one or more people do not distract others. If someone is distracted, they are not learning. (we have had big discussions on what distracted means)
One of our favourite books this week is "The highway Rat" - written by Julia Donaldson (the author of "The Gruffalo") Today we combined some drama/ role play with the PB4L focus. In the book, the Highway Rat steals food from all the animals he meets travelling along the highway. We combined this story with our PB4L focus an 'hey presto' we have some animals that are not going to be threatened by the Highway Rat (who was not keeping his hands to himself). Enjoy - and please feel free to leave a comment. Room 5 would love to hear from you :-)
