Dealing with challenge

Jean Gross's picture

This session from 2simple has some useful challenge activities that would be good for a carousel in the hall, with children then exploring the feelings they experienced when undertaking the tasks – and how they coped with those feelings. The slides and teaching about emotional resilience are a bit basic and not quite so useful.

New Year lesson plans

This toolkit from Mentally Healthy Schools has primary activities, lesson plans and assembly plans to help children to think about who they are as a person, recognise what they are good at, identify positive things about themselves, learn from their experiences and set goals.

One 20-30 minute activity helps encourage staff and pupils to think about their aspirations for the year ahead, especially in relation to mental health and wellbeing.
