This term we have been helping our children develop the emotional literacy skills they require to manage everyday life. We all experience a range of emotions everyday but being aware and learning how to manage these is one of the key skills of resilience and important for our health and wellbeing. We have been learning about the wellbeing indicators, SHANARRI, and how the way we feel impacts our wellbeing.
We have launched our final Resilience unit for this school session, Challenge Your Mindset. People who believe that we are born artists, athletes or scientists have a fixed mindset about themselves and others. They believe that learning potential and ability are fixed and can be measured. People with a growth mindset believe that effort, not just ability, leads to success. In this unit, we will learn that:
– Who we are and what we are good at, is not fixed.
– The way we think, feel or learn, shapes our brain.
– We can change through the choices we make.
This term we we have launched our next unit of our new Health and Wellbeing Resilience programme. This unit is called Respect Yourself. The main focus of this unit is on the importance of recognising and valuing ourselves as individuals. Nobody’s perfect – but learning to accept ourselves warts-and-all, identifying our strengths and looking after ourselves and our bodies increases our enjoyment of life and wellbeing. Later on in the term we will be learning about how to challenge our mindset. More information to follow.
Come and see your child learn in class and hear about our new ‘Building Resilience’ Health and Wellbeing programme. All families welcome from 1:45pm-2:45pm. Tea/Coffee and treats for all to enjoy too. We look forward to welcoming you tomorrow afternoon, Monday 6th February.
This term we have launched our next unit of our new Health and Wellbeing Resilience programme. This unit is called Keep Connected. The main focus of this unit is the importance of relationships and the contribution other people make to our wellbeing. In general, people with caring and positive relationships are happier, healthier and live longer. Having caring and positive relationships is one of the most important factors of our ability to cope with life’s ups and downs. During this unit the children will be thinking about people who are special to them. The children will also be encouraged to take part in an extra-curricular activity. This term we have a variety of clubs on offer. Please check the website for details. There will be parent/carer information leaflets sent out shortly. Children will have short homework tasks to complete too.
