Personal, Emotional and Social Development


Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities.

This will involve:

  • Getting to know other children in the class
  • Becoming familiar with the classroom environment
  • Learn about appropriate behaviour
  • Discuss routines and rules for music & drama, breakfast and lunchtime
