Last week was Children’s Mental Health Week. Schools across the country were involved in lots of exciting ways. At our small independent primary school, we used a great new resource with our Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes.
Our school had been operating remotely because of lockdown so we were limited in what we could do but found the ideal solution with A-life – a leading provider of Healthy Living Workshops, Fun Fitness and Alcohol & Drug Awareness sessions for primary schools.
A-Life has just launched a Mental Health Workshop as an in-school or online package. It was easy to run (simply ‘click and go’) and also really engaging for the children. It has differentiated levels for Years 1-2, Years 3-4 and Years 5-6 and covers the major topics of the RSE Mental Health Curriculum for 2020 being designed around the evidence-based 5 Ways to Wellbeing.
The A-Life promotional video below gives a brief overview of this excellent resource.
We look forward to continue helping the children to grow in resilience in the coming days.
