SEAL statement 12 September

Sunday 11 September 2011

Our SEAL statement for this week is ‘I understand what SEAL means.’

This week we are looking more closely at what SEAL represents and in particular what are the social and emotional skills and aspects of learning that SEAL is trying to develop. 

The aspects of learning are:

self awareness Self awareness
managing feelings Managing feelings
motivation Motivation
empathy Empathy
social skills Social skills

These aspects are often considered to fall into two categories – personal (eg self awareness) and interpersonal (eg social skills). 

Within each of these aspects of learning there are many skills. 

The SEAL resources allow children to develop the concepts, understanding and skills over time, building on what they have previously learned.
