Conflict? What Conflict?

Our brilliant year sevens turned their thoughts to everyday conflicts this week. The group demonstrated their impressive use of the cockney accent as we growled  ‘oi’, ‘get out of my pub’ and ‘leave it’ in a hilarious game of Eastenders before we turned our attention to resolving conflict in a more reflective way. We improvised a range of school based conflicts, including friends arguing about not keeping each other’s secrets and picking on the ‘new kid’.

Then, as a group we discussed what each person needed and worked together to find a peaceful resolution to the problem that saw both parties getting what they wanted.

It was a real pleasure to see the group really thinking about what somebody else might need, and how this might be interpreted incorrectly in the heat of the moment! It would, perhaps, lead to a less exciting episode of Eastenders though…
