In year 2 today, we discussed why it is important to have rules in school. Here are some of the ideas the children came up with.
The children were then asked to think about what would happen if they came into their classroom in the morning and there were no teachers or adults. The children came up with some great ideas, a lot of which involved partying, dancing and eating all day! At first they seemed quite excited at the prospect of a rule free day, but then we went on to discuss the negative impact that it would have. The children agreed that the novelty would most likely wear off after a while and they would miss having a calm and safe environment in which to learn.
