Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning (SEAL): Improving behaviour, improving learning

Theme 2: Getting on and falling out

This theme focuses on developing children's knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: empathy, managing feelings (with a focus on anger) and social skills.

Each colour-coded set is organised around developing the ethos of the classroom – extending the work of 'Theme 1: New beginnings' on cooperation and valuing diversity, and focusing on four key content areas: developing the social skills of friendship, working well together in a group, managing anger and resolving conflict.

Find all the activities and resources in the Attachments panel on the right hand side of your screen.
