This week we launched our final Building Resilience unit. This unit is called ‘Expect the Unexpected’. In this unit, we explore how we cannot protect ourselves from change (no matter how much we would like to) as it is part of life. Sometimes change can be a positive experience and sometimes it brings with it, disappointments, difficulties or loss. In this unit we will be learning that:
– Change is a part of life
– It’s ok not to be ok
– I have learnt ways to look after my mental health
We will reflect on the 10 tools we have been learning about over the past three years. We know how to look after our physical health by doing things like brushing our teeth, excercising and trying to make healthy food choices. However, we must also ensure we are looking after our minds. The ten tools we have been learning about help us do just that. We should practise using these tools regularly.
It is a relevant week to launch our final unit of Building Resilience as this week is Mental Health awareness week. The theme for 2019 is body image – how we think and feel about our bodies. This links to our ‘Respect Yourself’ unit.

We are delighted to have launched our next Building Resilience unit, Be Kind To Others. Kindness is one of our school values. Through this unit we will help the children to recognise the importance of being kind to ourselves and others. Look out for the family task and leaflet coming home soon!
We are delighted to have launched our next ‘Building Resilience’ unit, Look on the Bright Side. We can all look at the same situation from different perspectives. Sometimes the way we think about things that happen to us can have a bigger impact on our Wellbeing than the event itself. This unit will be exploring how through focusing on the positive things in our life and what we are grateful for can be a helpful way to change our mood. Look out for your family leaflet and home task.
Looking after the body and mind is important for our health. Taking part in regular excercise, or being active in other ways, brings many benefits to our physical health as well as our mental wellbeing.
Through this unit, the children will learn that in order to help us feel resilient we need to live a well-balanced and healthy life. When we feel ‘down’, being active is sometimes the last thing on our mind. However when we adapt an active lifestyle, fuel our body with proper nutrition and respect our bodies by allowing time to rest and relax, it can lead to a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life.
