Circle Time

Reception to Year 6 students

During Circle Time students divide up into the House Teams, with Reception to Year 6 students spread evenly across the groups, groups are led by our Student Voice leaders.  There are topics and activities that students participate in, circle time gives them time and tools to engage and listen to each other.

Circle time encourages unity, respect, turn-taking and working together towards a shared vision or learning that it’s ok to be different to someone else.

Five key skills that students practice during Circle time are: thinking, listening, looking, speaking, and concentrating.

Benefits of regular Circle time, generally run between recess and lunch are:

  • Improved speaking and listening skills;
  • Increased self-esteem;
  • A sense of community;
  • An understanding of how their behaviour affects others;
  • Improved emotional intelligence;
  • Improved problem-solving skills;
  • A sense of responsibility;
  • Improved relationships between children, and between children and their teachers.
