Enriching Circle Time

(Price: £16.99 Publisher: Lucky Duck Publications Ltd ISBN: 1-90431-526-7)

In this book, Yvonne draws upon her experience of using visualisation and positive thoughts with young people in Circle Time. Many teachers recognise the value of promoting aspiration and optimism for young people but they lack the resources and opportunity to introduce these techniques. This publication fills that gap providing:

• 20 Positive Thought scripts, each also provided as a photocopiable poster and in a colour version on the accompanying disk.
• 8 Complete Dream Journey scripts with teacher notes and ideas for follow up work.

These techniques can be used in several settings, to enrich Circle Time, to provide themes for assemblies or in the classrooms as part of Citizenship and the literacy lessons.

A wonderful resource on its own and links are made with key stage 1 and 2 targets including:

• Developing confidence and responsibility and making the most of their abilities
• Preparing to play an active role as citizens
• Developing good relationships and respecting the difference between people
• Developing a healthy safer lifestyle.
