Getting On and Falling Out
This theme focuses on developing children’s knowledge, understanding and skills in three
key social and emotional aspects of learning: empathy, managing feelings (with a focus on
anger) and social skills. It is organised around developing the ethos of the classroom – extending the work of our SEAL Theme- New beginnings on cooperation and valuing diversity, and focusing on four key content
areas: developing the social skills of friendship, working well together in a group, managing
anger and resolving conflict.
In our Junior Assembly this week we talked about getting on and falling out with our friends...
We listened and watched the orchestra play a new piece of music by Hans Zimmer, who has composed this piece inspired by planet earth for BBC 10 Pieces for schools. We know that music often inspires us, many of the children at school are now learning instruments so we explored how something that is inspirational feels.
We shared ideas and learned a strategy to help us be an inspiring friend who is kind and truthful. We learned to THINK
If we ensure the things we say and do are:
T - TRUE
H - HELPFUL
I - INSPIRING
N - NECESSARY
K - KIND
We would avoid falling out.. see if you can spot reminders around school that make us THINK!
We sang Sing, have a go at home its a great song which tells us that we all have a voice for love.
