SEAD: Theme 2 – Getting on and falling out

You can use these materials to support children's development of empathy, managing feelings (with a focus on anger) and social skills. It is one of the seven themes within Social and Emotional Aspects of Development (SEAD).

In Getting on and falling out (PDF-610 KB) Attachments you'll find support for your planning and ongoing assessment with connections to the learning framework for Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED). You'll also find key vocabulary, suggested questions and 'Look, listen and note' points to help you chart children's development.

There are games, stories and activities throughout, which are also supported by comments from practitioners on what they did and why.

You can also download resources that support the activities throughout the booklet. These include posters, a set of images, a story, a puppet show script and an interactive 'create-a-face' game.
