Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Description

The focus of this programme, made shortly after the 7 July London bombings, is uncomfortable feelings.

Teachers introduce reception children to a persona doll, taking on the role of a child who was in central London on the day of the bombings. This helps the children find strategies for dealing with and giving voice to feelings which they might have felt in the same situation.

Hotseating introduces children to people in the helping professions. Children ask questions and then take turns taking a role themselves while their class mates ask them questions in that same role.

Role-playing in a hospital setting helps the children deal with any feelings which might arise in a more every day, domestic situation. In a painting session the children explore all their feelings in a self-directed context.
