Throston Primary School

A Flying Start to Success

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

Using ‘Circle Time’ activities and the ‘Jigsaw PSHE / Health and Well-being’ materials, children participate in talking and sharing activities which will help them to develop a positive sense of themselves and others; respect for others; social skills and a positive disposition to learn. We have a range of resources including puppets, dolls, books and photographs which encourage children to explore and manage their own feelings and to understand appropriate behaviour when interacting in groups.

 In Nursery we promote good behaviours, with a class charter. We look at friendships and sharing. The children are encouraged to play together. There are opportunities to talk about their feelings and consider how others feel too. We think about people who are less well-off to us. We encourage a self-awareness, with work on what we are proud of and what we would like to try to do.
