Zones of Regulation

Zones of Regulation is a an approach used to support children to further develop their social and emotional skills.  Essentially it helps pupils to better understand their feelings as well as teaching strategies to aid them in regulating their emotions and behaviours.

 

Pupils are taught to associate their feelings (negative and positive) with a colour in the first instance and then use vocabulary to describe it e.g. 'I am feeling red' (for angry, mad, out of control) or 'I am feeling green' (for calm, ready to learn and happy).  The children also then develop a 'toolkit' whereby they have a strategy to use for specific feelings e.g.'I am feeling red/angry, so I will go to the calm zone and read a book'.  

 

Every classroom is set up with a 'calming zone' where children can go to regulate their emotions and behaviours.

 

 

What do the zones look like in the classrooms?
