Our first inquiry for 2013- Relationships (Years 1&2 in Victoria, Australia)

Central idea

People’s relationships with each other can have an impact on wellbeing.

Key concepts

causation, responsibility

Related concepts

Conflict, cooperation, balance, friendship

Lines of inquiry

How we develop relationships

How relationships affect us

Roles and behaviours within relationships

Teacher questions

How do we develop and maintain healthy relationships?

What makes a supportive relationship?

What actions help to build healthy relationships?

What a wonderful inquiry to start our year. Our inquiry lends itself perfectly to learning about being a member of a team. The children have inquired into the different types of relationships and how ttheir relationships and personal well-being are related.

They have explored relationships through literature and have acted, drawn, painted, talked and written about conflict resolution, problems, their responsibility in a relationship, friendship and much more. We have slowly developed our essential agreements for what we want our classroom to ‘look like, feel like and sound like’.

The children have identified people in their life they can share their problems with and are developing into a supportive team.
