the magic of circle time!!
Recently some of our Free-Flow children sat in a circle and participated in some ‘circle time’. Whenever they had the worm teddy, that signalled it was their time to talk and if they didn’t have hold of it it meant they had to listen carefully to what their friends were saying instead.
Circle time is a great way to develop speaking and listening skills and build confidence and as it was their first time taking part they started simple and had to tell their friends who lived in their house, their favourite colour and what they liked to eat at home.
Our children were very excited by the prospect of having their turn and most liked to chat away when they had the worm in their hands…
It was fascinating for these friends to listen carefully to their peers and gain an insight into each others’ lives as they chatted together xxxx
