We are planning a curriculum based on wellbeing for September autumn 1 thinking of positive mental health, team-building, hope etc. for R to Year 6 across the curriculum to help us rebuild a sense of school community. Has anyone come across any good links to ideas/resources/organisations during lockdown which also observe social distancing? Also, a fiction text challenging enough for KS2 with a positive focus on looking after yourself/each other? Perhaps lots of us will be doing this right now and we can share some ideas. Thank you.
Certainly there's lots of research around art for well being; the challenge is getting that right.
If you follow the big draw on twitter, you'll find a number of primary art teachers who have good ideas for this.
The Thrive approach has a Facebook community group for adults with lots of tips and links and activities. you don't have to be Thrive trained to join.
Also there is a lady called Pooky Knightsmith that has some free training on her website around return to school, making it welcoming and nurturing. I found her interesting. She uses the acronym SWAN but I can't remember the site. She talks lots about emotional health and may have links to resources.
Thanks for these - I didn't know where to start really because we would probably have started back on a WWII theme or something that just wouldn't be appropriate for this September and we'd be reading Goodnight Mr Tom or similar. Given the lockdown, I'd like something a bit chirpier to bring the class back together as a team. (All assuming it will be back to normal come September)
