Children learn differently. Some children learn by what they see, others by what they hear and others by what they do. If we force children to learn in only one way, they may not learn at all, therefore we aim for a holistic approach to lớn teaching to lớn cover all students’ learning styles. At, we aim to adapt our lessons lớn suit all students, rather than leaving different learners behind. Children must know the rules of the classroom but also be allowed lớn be themselves. If a child is engaged in the class, listening, answering questions, looking, but jumping up và down. This is not misbehaviour. Some children cannot sit still as well as others. At, we vì not want a strict, silent classroom. For anyone, adults & children; if you are not relaxed & comfortable you bởi not learn.



Children learn through playing, observation and discovering

Children have an amazing ability for learning language. Children of this age will learn language faster than most teenagers or adults. Some suggest this is because children vày not ‘study’ language like adults do. Vị you remember learning your native language? Probably not! Children of this age learn language not through study, but through play, observation and discovery. Language learning is subconscious for children, & does not always require sitting at a desk repeating vocabulary & phrases.


Behaviour Management & Conflict Resolution is declared a ‘violence free zone’. is an environment where children can feel safe và comfortable. We are not teaching children; we are teaching future adults. Children often use physical violence with other children, as they are still learning to lớn use their words. We aim khổng lồ teach children to lớn resolve conflict verbally. We aim khổng lồ teach children cooperation, compassion and empathy. These are vital skills for adult life và humanity in general. Therefore, conflict resolution is imperative to lớn teach children responsibility for their actions. Apologising for their behaviour is key lớn this. Children must realise causing harm to another human being is anti-social, counter-productive và wrong.

* encourages children khổng lồ solve conflicts by using theirs words

Conflict between children is natural and will happen. They are learning to lớn cooperate with other children. Hitting and physical violence is anti-social behaviour, if not handled now this will create bigger problems when the child is older. Telling children ‘no hitting’ is easy, but doesn’t allow them khổng lồ understand they have caused pain for another human being. Instead of ‘no hitting’ perhaps we could start saying ‘we don’t hurt other people’. It’s very important for the child to lớn see they have harmed another child, rather than the child feeling they are in trouble with the teacher. The conflict resolution is the most important part of this process. The child must apologise for their behaviour. Some children can be scared of saying sorry because it feels lượt thích a punishment. It is not. Saying sorry is the child realising they have misbehaved and doing the right thing khổng lồ correct their behaviour. When children vì chưng say sorry, we praise it very highly (and in front of other children). The issue is, when children refuse to apologise. For this; we give 2 choices. You can say sorry or you can have time out. This is a tricky issue, as we cannot waste too much class time waiting for one child to apologise. It must be quick. Two hands are held up lớn symbolise two options. Sorry? Or time out? 3, 2, 1… then the child decides. It is difficult as the children are too young for an explanation as lớn why their behaviour is bad, but children vị not need full understanding of language to understand the tone và the situation. We are all disappointed because you hit another child. You know not to lớn hit. I am happy when you are kind to lớn other children etc.


For this exact reason, we would like to say there is absolutely NO physical punishment at First, how can we tell children not to lớn hit when we hit them, it does not make sense và will confuse the child.They may think ‘when I’m an adult, then I’m allowed to hit’. Secondly, it is proven that physical violence has zero effect on behaviour whatsoever. The idea is for a child to realise their behaviour is wrong và then want lớn correct it. With physical punishment, the child learns nothing. If you hit a child, they will learn not khổng lồ misbehave only when you are around because you are the source of punishment.



Children are constantly observing the world around them. They learn by imitating. Some children will quite literally copy every movement adults make, from sound to facial expressions. Anger is a natural emotion, but as adults we have learnt khổng lồ manage our anger, và we must lead by example. Using anger khổng lồ discipline children is not effective. Moreover it has been proven when children are fearful, it can greatly affect their ability to lớn learn. Anger does not help children learn the rules or the consequences of their actions. We cannot scold a child with a raised voice and expect that same child to lớn speak nicely to their friends. We teach with guidance và encouragement, not aggression.



Encouraging proper behaviour is the way khổng lồ help children learn rules quickly


We believe all our children lớn be intelligent and capable of learning rules very quickly. Children know what is good & bad behaviour in the classroom. Therefore, use the positive tactic of strongly encouraging and tư vấn good behaviour, rather than focus on punishment. We have seen positive change in using this tactic, we have seen children pass this encouragement onto each other and create a tư vấn network within theclassroom.
