This week, we revise another lesson on touches. In this lesson, the key message is that we should never keep a touch a secret. You may also want to discuss with your son how the private parts of our bodies are those that are covered by our swimsuits.


This week is a particularly nice lesson in which we learn a little about other faiths – Islam and Judaism – through a storyboard about three friends in 1st class in school. Watch and listen to the three videos and then try to complete the related worksheet.
