Conflict resolution role-plays in Year 1

“Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict.” ~ Dorothy Thompson

As part of the Whole School Social Skills program, in Year One we have been learning about and exploring Resolving Conflicts. We identified that conflict is when two or more people cannot agree on something. As a class, we discussed some examples of conflict we face in day-to-day life, and some ‘fair’ ways of resolving them. We agreed upon and recorded on a poster tips for ‘Resolving Conflicts’ quickly and fairly. The children then role played some scenarios that involved conflict and how to identify and manage them effectively. They did a great job and are keen to practice the new skills they are acquiring.
