A small team from our staff have investigated and begun working with the KidsMatter tools and we have again had the opportunity to explore the website. There are some great resources and links for teachers, parents and carers.
As we enter into the winter with winter activities such as football and soccer we often experience a spike in difficulties out on the playground. Games such as these can easily get physically but also importantly there are not explicit rules and often no umpire or referee to solve problems. With shades of grey around the playground rules, frustration and anxiety can lead to conflict.
Provided is a link to the parent pages related to Conflict Resolution to encourage parents and teachers work together to develop children’s skills to resolve conflict..
