Every Tuesday after school, a group of children meet with Miss Burns to complete a range of activities to promote wellbeing, resilience and team building skills. A lot of the activities are child initiated with the children planning what they want to do and link it to wellbeing. This links to Article 12- Respect for the views of the child, as we allow the children to plan and discuss the things we do. We talk and discuss anything we want to, whether it be issues or problems at home or school, any worries we might have and how to deal with them, and most importantly-what makes us happy!
The children have enjoyed making dens in the forest as a team; taking on a teacher role whilst completing a task; creating posters and tips and advice booklets.
If your child would be interested in attending this club, then please speak to the office or Miss Burns.
In Resilience and Wellbeing club, we have been learning about different feelings and emotions, and how to deal with these in a safe way. We are allowed to feel differently in certain situations and contexts, the main thing is thinking and having positive solutions in place, so we can be in control of ourselves.
If you are feeling sad, what can you do to make yourself feel better?
If you are feeling anxious, what could a positive solution be?
Share your feelings with others around you, speak about your emotions and ask for help and support if you need to. We are always here to help you.
