Social Emotional Learning
About The Project
Launched in Autumn 2020, this project will encourage and support emotional learning in children aged between 3 and 6 years old through transforming their school grounds for the benefit of birds. Learning to care for the natural world will encourage social and emotional development in these children, in turn helping them learn how to take care of themselves and their own wellbeing.
We aim to use the combined expertise of the project partners to develop a novel methodology for children’s emotional learning, creating a research study and a suite of new resources for schools based upon the findings of this project.
This methodology will be crucial in ensuring that children grow up with a thorough understanding of how to care for themselves, those around them and the environment.
