Summary The development of children's self-awareness and social skills enables them to find increased enjoyment in friendships. Improving basic communication skills helps children to become more effective learners. The authors' experience as educational psychologists, which is supported by research data, points to the importance of the social climate of the school, classroom and playground. What happens between children can affect how they learn and their whole attitude to school. The authors believe that co-operative and collaborative skills are of as much lasting benefit to individuals as becoming numerate and literate and that positive social experiences for all children need not be left to chance. This book sets out to explore the different social contexts that - children find themselves in at school. It aims to link principles and theory with practical application by providing activities for developing a positive social climate in an educational setting.
