Week 3

This week, Zones of Regulation was introduced across school and we did a variety of lessons in the classroom to support our knowledge and understanding of this (see below). 

At WPS, we want children to be able to recognise their emotions and equip them with the tools to help them to self-regulate and manage their feelings. As part of the Zones of Regulation, we recognise that there are 4 zones:


  • Green - good to GO
  • Yellow SLOW down or take warning
  • Red STOP and regain control
  • Blue REST and recharge


Everyone experiences all of the zones and all of the zones are expected at one time or another.


Following a whole school assembly introducing the Zones of Regulation, we covered the following in afternoon lessons:

Lesson 1 - Children were introduced to the zones

Lesson 2 - Children played emotion bingo to help embed the understanding of the zones.

Lesson 3 - We watched a clip from Finding Nemo and identified the zones in other characters. We also discussed how the zone we are in can impact others.

Lesson 4 - We looked at various scenarios and discussed which zone we would be in if they happened to us.


We ended the week with an express yourself non-uniform day and the children took part in well-being activities during the afternoon. 


Over the next few weeks, we will introduce the children to strategies that could be used in each Zone. Children will create their own personal tool box which they can refer to when they are in the different Zones.
