Personal, Social and Emotional Development is one of three prime areas of learning in the EYFS Curriuculum. At Christ Church, PSED is part of our everyday learning, where children are supported to form positive relationships, learn social skills, manage and talk about feelings and to develop self confidence when trying new activities.
We also have a directed PSED circle time on a weekly basis, which covers a range of themes to promote a positive sense of well-being.
Our topics include;
- Me and my Relationships
- Valuing differences
- Keeping myself safe
- Looking after myself, others and my environment
- Being my best
- Growing and changing
