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

Theme 7: Changes

This theme tackles the issue of change and aims to equip children with an understanding of different types of change, positive and negative, and common human responses to it.

The theme seeks to develop children's ability to understand and manage the feelings associated with change. It aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in three key social and emotional aspects of learning: motivation, social skills and managing feelings.
