It is time to give back!

In hub 11 & 12 we are learning about what we need to make sure our well being is looked after, Maslow's hierarchy of needs is a motivational theory in psychology comprising a five tier model of human needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid. Our most basic need is for physical survival, and this will be the first thing that motivates our behaviour. Once that level is fulfilled the next level up is what motivates us, and so on. If you look at the pyramid - you will notice that the most basic need in a person's like is food, water, warmth and rest is something that many of us have readily available. Let's put our feet in somebody else's shoes just for a moment - There are people in our communities who do not have access to this basic need.

Hub 11 & 12 are looking at ways we can help - As 5 and 6 year olds what can we do that can make a difference ?

Talk at home with your learners about some of the things that you can do! Watch this space ... we have exciting learning to come.
