Dear Parents,For this week, we will be working on THE MAGIC WORDS and continue our lessons on TIME AND SHAPES in Science and Maths respectively.

But there are lots of people in the world, and good manners help everyone get along together.~When we ask for something we say “Please”, when someone gives us something, we say “Thank You”.~At lunch time, we know we wash our hands and sit up straight at the table. And we know that its not polite to talk with our mouths full.~When we play together, everyone has a good time when we share, and are polite to each other.~When we are playing with our friends, it is not polite to whisper about someone who is near by, because it might hurt their feelings.~It is not polite to interrupt someone who is trying to talk.~Everyone likes a person who has good manners.
