The group goals are to:

  • Develop self-awareness in group settings
  • Increase social confidence
  • Develop the ability to recognise expected and unexpected behaviours in others and themselves.
  • Develop understanding of how each person’s actions can impact on others and their feelings.
  • Develop an awareness of feelings – happy, sad, angry, and anxious and how our body responds to these feelings.

Each week we follow a similar routine varying activities including:

  • Greetings
  • Free play – gross motor activities
  • Team building games
  • Becoming Social Superhero’s –Group activities and discussion
  • Fun Group Activity involving winning and losing, taking turns and learning to be a good friend.

Each week we award Friendship points to each club member as we notice Expected Group Behaviours.  On week 8 we plan to go on an outing with the club.  Earning as many friendship points will prove that each member is ready to go on the trip and behave in a friendly and expected way

We are very happy to work with parents and schools on any specific skills that need to be developed, please do email each week to let us know how your child is getting on and anything we should be celebrating and anything you would like us to discuss in the group.
