A big welcome back from the Summer holidays and a huge welcome to all our new children and their families. If you haven’t already ,don’t forget to bring in a family photograph so we can pop it on our family wall.
This first half term as we gently get back into the swing of things, will see the children making new friends & becoming that little bit more confident as they leave their carers, some for the first time.
Week commencing 10/9/2017 we will be talking about World first aid day – Not only will we be talking about people that help us , including having visits from nurses, Betty the lollipop lady and hopefully a Policeman but looking at how we can support each other by being kind and helpful in the setting. Personal , Social and emotional development is one of the most important areas of learning :-
- Personal development is about how children come to understand who they are and what they can do.
- Social development covers how children come to understand themselves in relation to others, how they make friends, understand the rules of society and behave towards others.
- Emotional development concerns how children understand their own and others’ feelings and develop their ability to be empathetic – to see things from another person’s point of view.
Children who have the skills to interact well with other people and form positive relationships can tap into a huge resource to support their learning. Young children also need lots of opportunities and encouragement to begin to look at the world from the perspective of others and to develop empathy – which is not always easy for the under-threes to understand. All of our interactive activities allow the children the opportunity to learn through play and therefore becomes second nature to them when out and about.
