This week we are going to focus on health and wellbeing because as I’m sure you’ll agree, it is very important to look after ourselves. To help us understand and talk about our emotions in nursery, we use the zones of regulation.
Let’s revisit Mrs Pollard’s zones of regulation video and have a think about how we feel today. Which zone are you in?
We talk with our children about strategies they can use if they are in different ‘zones’. One strategy we talk about is if they are in the Red Zone they can clench their fists to help them to get their anger out.
Miss Connolly has made a step by step guide to making a stress ball that you could have fun making at home in case your child ever needs a way of getting out of the red zone.
