Self-regulation Share Session

We’were so pleased to able to share our passion for self-regulation and independence in our parent share session.  We tried to emphasise the three main messages that were: 
Sometimes you have to keep on trying, 
Children need to be able to understand and label emotions and 
Everyone needs to be explicitly taught strategies to be able to calm themselves down.
 
We enjoyed peer massage, yoga, rolling pom poms with our bare feet, blowing ping pong balls and feeling our breathing on the mat, making faces with different emotions, reading books about feelings and playing games that can be frustrating and need you to keep on going.  
Well done to all of the children for today.  Our greater focus on this is beginning to be seen on our children this year and they are becoming resilient, focussed and calmer children! Thank you for all your support at home too!
