Zones of regulation

Your child may have been talking about feeling ‘red’ or ‘yellow’. What does this mean? Well, St Mark’s are adopting a really helpful way for children to identify and talk about their emotional state- even when they are angry or anxious! Identifying the colour helps them to know ‘it’s ok to feel this way’, although we are still responsible for our actions., It also enables children to know how to move towards a more settled state, which may not always been straight to green.
