Year 1 – Getting to Know Myself


In Getting to Know Myself, Charlie and Alice, the main characters, are starting school.

Young pupils associate easily with them as they settle into a new rhythm, make friends among their classmates, and find more being demanded of them both at school and at home.

Through the stories, children are encouraged to explore their personal identity, the meaning of responsibility, and the importance of respecting themselves, other people and the common rules that govern social behaviour.

The story book is designed to be read out and passed round by the teacher so only one copy is necessary in a classroom. Up to 6 teachers can have access to the electronic teacher guide with a single purchase.

The full teacher guide for this resource is in digital format only, available in the package for Years 1-3.
