‘Every child is a genuis’ – Albert Einstein
Stepping Stones is our KS1 Nurture Provision. providing a calm and nurturing environment, allowing the children to have a safe space to express themselves. The primary focus of Stepping Stones is to provide a space where children can develop their emotional literacy skills, led by Mrs Piper.
This may include ELSA (Emotional Literacy) sessions, where the children are guided through specific activities tailored to their own particular needs, SandPlay or Drawing and Talking Therapy.
Emotional Literacy is the ability to understand and communicate our emotions, a very important aspect of our learning in Stepping Stones.
We have played lots of games to start to recognise how we are feeling and why, with some of our children starting to make these important links.
Another aspect of our Emotional Literacy lessons has been developing the ability to understand how to be a good friend; we are kindness superheroes!
We are also learning to be confident and enthusiastic learners, developing resilience and identifying what makes each and every one of us amazing!
