Partner Class reflection sheet

Partner Class reflection sheet

Based on the idea that children are not 'naughty' but expressing an unmet need, this reflection sheet has been created for children to think about their behaviour and needs. It helps children simply structure their thoughts and feelings and communicate their needs to the teacher which has resulted in significant changes in behaviour.

Reflection sheet for behaviour change

Reflection sheet for behaviour change

I developed this resource as a way of a grown up reflecting with a young person about any unsafe behaviours they had been involved in. The ideas are based on the idea that children do not 'misbehave' rather they are developing emotionally and as such need to be given skills on how to do things differently. Via reflection, children have a chance to think about their feelings and how they result in actions/reactions and the impact of their behaviour on others. It also gives the opportunity to learn how to repair any relationships that have been broken. It gives the adult the chance to assess for emotional literacy, ability to empathise and allows for teaching points. The whole process takes just 10 minutes and the impact has been substantial in changing behaviour.

Visual timetable - annual

Visual timetable - annual

As a behaviour specialist, I am aware of the challenges transitions and breaks can have on our young people. I developed these visual timetables which are displayed around the school and in each classroom so that children can see the shifting of time. This has resulted in a decrease of behaviour in the last week of term and our most vulnerable children now understand and can see when they are to change class. Used in primary and I have used this with secondary aged children too. My other resource - weekly visual timetable compliments this
