On Wednesday, Robins were asked to think about the Peacemaker questions “What do you need now? and “What do you need to happen next time?”
Children acknowledged that often, just saying sorry doesn’t stop the behaviour happening again or make them feel any better immediately. The children read through Peacemaker’s cards which helped them to identify some of the needs that can arise. After using the cards, one child felt angry and recognised they needed space to calm down, away from another pupil. One girl needed reassurance from another pupil they would not repeat a certain behaviour that had upset her. We talked about how using the cards might help and support us in being able to explain how we feel and what we need as it can often be tricky to know how to manage feelings.
