Personal, Social and Emotional

Personal, Social and Emotional Development in the EYFS supports children to learn to get on with others and make friendships, understand and talk about feelings, learn about 'right' and 'wrong' and develop independence. In Yellow Class there is an established routine where the children all feel safe and stimulated. 

Within the group we follow Jenny Mosley's Golden Rules based around moral values. We have firmly embedded the following classroom rules: 

  • Listening ears 
  • Looking eyes 
  • Thinking heads
  • Speaking mouths & inside voices 
  • Walking feet 
  • Kinds hands
  • No toys from home 


Alongside, supporting individuals mental health and well-being by encouraging turn taking, sharing & talking about their feelings and developing resilience.
