Social Emotional Learning

Through the topic SEL (Social Emotional Learning), students have the opportunity to develop new friendships, work as a team, collaborate and share their feelings/emotions. The students are made aware of the rules of Circle Time and know that what they discuss at Circle Time stays in the circle. Through shared stories and experiences, students are able to voice the many issues they or others face. They are learning to become resilient and assert themselves when they need to.
Students have piggy banks to place their deposits. They are encouraged to place positive feedback in other piggy banks, just the way they would appreciate if others did the same to their piggy bank.

During SEL sessions we have been reading stories, performing skits and attempting quizzes on values. Through R.E units of work we have we have integrated our SEL discussions when listening to stories from the Old Testament and through shared discussions examined and recognised the SEL competencies we need to develop in ourselves.
We still come across various issues in the classroom, playground and in our homes and need skills to become the children we ought to be. This SEL video will give you an insight into how this is possible.
After viewing it let us examine and share how we can change our ways too.

    Hi Mrs Cordeiro,
    I think that Social Emotional Learning is important because we need to learn how to socialize with others. It also teaches us how to manage our emotions and make responsible decisions. It is not easy but if we practice it often, we will be able to communicate with others confidently.

      I am glad that S.E.L sessions are looked upon positively by many of the students and everyone is finding it beneficial.

    Hi Mrs Cordeiro,
    I checked out the video clip and I think it’s important to socialise with others and peers. Social Emotional Learning is very important because it teaches us to be open and speak what’s in our minds. By socialising with others you can feel more included, not left out and then you know that you are not alone also that your friends/ peers can help you with your situation.

    I saw the video of ‘5 Keys of Social and Emotional Learning Success’. I learnt a lot from that video and I also learnt that as we are grow up we must learn how to control our emotions, which I didn’t know before.

    Hi Mrs Cordeiro,

    I think that Social Emotional Learning is great for the kids because they can make more friends,improves our confidence and in circle time we can express how we feel.

    Hi Mrs Cordeiro,
    I think SEL is a great education because it is a time to express your feelings to one another. It is also a great experience to make new friends and co-operate with each other. 🙂

    Hi Mrs Cordeiro,
    I liked the video. People need to learn about SEL because they need to control their temper. There is a need for self awareness and kids can deal with problems if they taught how to deal with it in a positive way.

    I really enjoy SEL every Friday. I like the talk about making right decisions. When we discuss the issues others face sometimes it helps solve my issues.

    Hi Mrs Cordeiro!

    I think S.E.L is a great way for students to share their feelings and develop relationship skills. I really enjoy how we all have fun while we get to know each other. I hope we will continue this next year!

    Your student, Wendy
