…called Changes.

This theme tackles the issue of change and aims to equip your child with an understanding of different types of change, both positive and negative, and common human responses to it.

The last half-term before the summer holidays is obviously a good time to consider changes. All the children in school will be starting to think of changing class – their teacher and their classroom.  Year 6 children will also be thinking about changing school, whilst Year 5 children will be thinking about changes as part of Sex and Relationships Education where they will consider changes to do with puberty.

The theme seeks to develop your child’s ability to understand and manage the feelings associated with change. It aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: motivation, social skills and managing feelings.
