New primary resources for getting on with others

We absolutely love these free resources from the Tower Hamlets Oracy Hub, as they combine our passions for oracy and social and emotional learning. The lessons help children learn to talk effectively together in groups, at the same time as developing empathy and emotional awareness. There are lesson plans for each of KS1, Lower KS2 and Upper KS2, with pictures, links to videos, discussion prompts and sentence starters.

The KS1 lessons include work on friendships, loneliness and self-identity.

This is a nice secondary assembly (guide and slides) to get students thinking about kindness. There are lots of links to good videos and news stories. With thanks to Place2Be.

The same but different

This assembly plan and lesson resources were created as part of the Mentally Healthy Schools World Mental Health Day 2020 resources, but can be used any time for work on diversity and difference. There are lesson plans for three different primary age groups.

How the brain works - A lesson for upper KS2 and KS3 on how feelings can take over and get out of control

This lesson helps pupils understand how the parts of the brain work together in dealing with strong emotions. Children learn what it means to 'lose it' during an emotional hi-jack. There are some great videos and a fun activity where pupils illustrate what the three parts of the brain would look like if they were people!
