Respect

Thought of the Day

We are learning this term about the importance of treating others with respect even if we sometimes do not agree with the way they behave or the things they say. We have also been thinking about how we should treat the things that belong to us and to other people respectfully.
• Think of some practical ways that you show respect to each other in your family.
• Often we show respect to someone by the way we speak to them. What does this mean in practice?
• Do you treat one another’s possessions with respect? What does this mean in practice?
