Learning to accept change is a big part of growing up. Deliver this theme with creative circle time

This article was originally written in the context of the SEAL programme (Social and Emotional Aspects of Learning), but these circle time activities could be used within PSHE education, or to address specific issues which arise in your classroom.

Change inevitably happens to everyone throughout life. Some of these changes are unwelcome, while others are unexpected and surprising. Many children find the concept of change unsettling, and need to learn strategies to cope.

Such children also need to learn that they can make changes for themselves. They have, for instance, a considerable amount of power to improve the way they approach learning tasks. This requires motivation, persistence and a high enough level of self-esteem to see the outcome as worth the effort. It is therefore vital that we give children the skills that enable them to change their behaviour and attitudes in a positive way.
