Cloud 9

Cloud 9 is a space in school that can be used for a variety of therapeutic interventions aimed at developing children’s emotional literacy. At Alma Park the children decided that our room dedicated room should be called ‘Cloud 9’.

We created a fun but nurturing environment where children can feel comfortable and at ease with others. Throughout the school year we run a variety of groups and 1:1 sessions to meet the social, emotional and behavioural needs of the children. These provide an opportunity for free expression, exploration and peer interaction. Sessions comprise of enjoyable circle time games, emotional literacy, group discussions, confidence building activities, visualisations, imaginative role play activities and free play. We encourage them to be independent and confident in their abilities which in turn enhances their social development, giving them a strong sense of personal identity.
