In Year 1M this term students have been learning about the unit ‘Love One Another’. This unit’s main focus is about relationships and the way we relate with others. 1M has been learning about what friendship means, the qualities that make a good friend and the importance of having friends in their lives. Students have also been learning about forgiveness and why it is an important part of maintaining healthy relationships. Students have been introduced and engaged into the story of ‘How many times must we forgive?’ This story allowed students to explore the reasons on why we forgive and understood that this can be difficult at times. This made them aware of the high importance of forgiving others to develop and maintain a positive relationship. It is evident that students have reflected on the story and are showing friendship qualities in their daily school life, within the classroom and on the playground.
