Circle Time at the Afterschool Club
Following on from some specialist training and practice sessions last year, our first ‘Circle Time’ of the year took place today. Circle time is part of our new programme at the After School Club and is one of the ways we are supporting the children and young people who attend to develop soft skills, increase their confidence and self-esteem as well as encouraging greater inclusion and full participation for all.
Today we found out more about each other and discussed what a smile means and why smiles are important for us. Our sessions for this term will focus on listening and concentrating, understanding and talking about feelings and being kind.
The session today was full of laughter and positive discussion and all the children said they were looking forward to circle time next week!
