Social and Emotional Education

A main focus of the Primary Social and Emotional project, is developing the children’s personal goals; these underpin the individual qualities and learning dispositions that children will find essential in the 21st century. They help to develop those qualities that will enable children to be at ease with the continually changing context of their lives. Opportunities to experience and practice these are built into the learning tasks within each Project area that we study.

  • thoughtfulness
  • adaptability
  • enquiry
  • resilience
  • morality
  • communication
  • cooperation
  • respect
  • creativity

In addition, each month we focus on a particular personal goal and reflect on how far we have come on our journey to achieving this goal. For example, during the month of September we focused on our goal of being thoughtful learners and members of the community.

 

Children in Year 6 discussed how to show that they were being thoughtful. They came up with some ideas like "Holding the door open for teachers," "Sharing classroom equipment." They created a chart to record this, which is outside their classroom. Anyone who notices them being thoughtful has been invited to sign their name in the appropriate place. Over the year we should see what they do that is so thoughtful.

In October we looked at our adaptability and the children amazed their teachers by showing how adaptable they are. Most of the children in the school speak at least 2 languages and they are also learning a new language this year - Chinese! The children also reflected on how each year they meet new teachers and make new friends. We also link our personal goals to our Stars of the Fortnight that our announced in primary assembly.
