This term we will be launching our next unit of our Health and Wellbeing Resilience programme. This unit is called Talk Things Over. Life can be full of ups and downs. Feeling worried is a normal reaction when faced with a challenge or a setback. When we worry, things go round and round in our head. If these feelings are not dealt with, they can sometimes get out of control. However the good news is, that eventually these feelings will pass. Through this unit, children will learn how worries affect our wellbeing and what we can do to deal with them to stop them escalating. We will be focussing on the following three key messages throughout this unit:• At times we all feel worried
• If worries are not dealt with, they can sometimes get out of control
• If you are struggling, it is important to ask for help
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.
