The Small Book of Skills Series has been designed by Jenny Mosley for SEAD and SEAL frameworks and to support PSHE work in primary schools and nursery settings. Each book contains superb games and activities to promote each of the Five Skills of thinking, looking, listening, speaking and concentrating. Every single activity has a follow up one, which beautifully embeds the skill that has just been learnt.
You can use these precious little handbooks throughout the day to keep children alert to the skills they need to practice. Without these skills children will not learn effectively, it is therefore crucial that from an early age children develop an understanding of these basic skills and use them regularly. Children cannot access learning until you've taught them these five skills first.
Begin the day with a thinking activity, at the start of assembly conduct a concentrating or listening activity. By embedding these activities into your normal school routine, they will become force of habit for teachers and children alike.
Books are A5 in size and come in a pack of 5.
