Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Aspects of personal, social and emotional development includes; making relationships, self-confidence and self-awareness, and managing feelings and behaviour.
Through adult led and child-initiated activities children develop skills to;
- play co-operatively and take account of one another’s ideas about how to organise their activities;
- Show sensitivity to others’ needs and feelings, and form positive relationships with adults and other children;
- become confident to try new activities and speak in a familiar group, talking about their ideas;
- talk about their own and others feelings, behaviour, and its consequences, and know that some behaviour is unacceptable;
- work as part of a group or class, and understand and follow the rules;
- adjust their behaviour to different situations, and take changes of routine in their stride.
