This group meets for an hour once a week and is run by two of our experienced Learning Support Assistants. The main purpose of this group is to help the children develop both a sense of identity and a sense of belonging and so strengthen their self-esteem.
Through a variety of activities they will also develop their social skills, such as learning to take turns in conversation, to play together, support each other and to take into account other's feelings. The group will create a story together, and in doing so the children will begin to listen to each other's ideas and work collaboratively. Games are played, kites made, pictures drawn, stories read, junk models made and many other activities completed.
