Children form positive relationships with their peers and adults in the setting by initiating conversation and
listening/responding to what others are saying to them. They ask appropriate questions and explain their own knowledge and understanding when talking. Children take steps to resolve conflicts with their peers by playing co-operatively, taking turns and finding a compromise. They take account of one another's ideas about how to organise their activity and show sensitivity to others' needs and feelings.
Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness
Children are confident to speak to others about their own needs, wants, interests and opinions. They describe themselves in positive terms and talk about their abilities and what they feel good at doing. They are confident to try new activities and say why they like some activities more than others. They are confident to speak in a familiar group and will talk about their ideas and show their work during 'Show & Tell'. They become more independent when choosing the resources they need for their chosen activities and will say when they do or don't need help.
Managing feelings and behaviour
Children understand that their actions affect other people, for example, they become upset or try to comfort another child when they realise they have upset them. They are aware of the boundaries set, and of behavioural expectations in the setting. They begin to solve problems with aggression, for example, when someone has taken their toy. Children talk about how they and others show feelings, talk about their own and others' behaviour, and its consequences. They know that some behaviour is unacceptable and adjust their behaviour to different situations. They work as part of a group or class and take changes of routine in their stride.
