Best-selling author Jenny Mosley shows how to link Circle Time and SEAL in this step-by-step guide. It explains the fundamentals of Circle Time; each step is vividly described and practical Circle Time plans are linked to the SEAL themes of:
• Getting on and falling out
• Say no to bullying
• Going for goals
• Good to be me
Each plan has five different stages – meeting up, warming up, opening up, cheering up and calming down. Jenny also explains how to design personalised Circle Time sessions and how to write accompanying plans.
“Circle Time is important in the government’s approach to the social and emotional aspects of learning materials (SEAL). More and more teachers are using Circle Time routinely in their classrooms. This book provides that guidance… The ideas in this book are practical and realistic. Enjoy the ideas…”
Jean Gross, Director of the Primary National Strategy’s SEAL Guidance
