Good morning all πŸ₯°

Welcome back all, we hope your all well and eager to start the new term. A few inspirational words to get us started…. 😁

Stay safe, be kind, be happyβ€¦πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€β­οΈ

This week we have a lovely game that you can play to boost children’s self esteem. All you need is a dice, 2 pegs and either a print out out of the game or a drawing of it. All you need to do is throw the die, and move the peg up the board and whatever word you land on, you must share a time you’ve shown this characteristic. The first person to the top is the winner. You must throw the exact number to finish on the top square. 


This game helps children recognise their strengths and characteristics, boosting their self esteem.

 

This game is provided by ELSA support.

Being outdoors can have a great impact on our mental health, enjoying the sunshine and the nature around us. Here’s some free activities for you to try this week: 

Welcome back, we hope you enjoyed your half term. 
What splendid weather we are experiencing, with this in mind we have a lovely activity that you can try outdoors. 

 


Simply colour bubbles or washing up liquid with food colouring and blow onto a piece of paper and away you ​​​​​​go ! As the bubbles land and pop on the paper they start to make beautiful pieces of art. 
You may need to wear old clothes or an apron as the food colouring may stain your clothes. 
ENJOY 😁

Here’s some lovely activities to try through June, from ELSA Support: 

Have a great half term everyone...πŸ₯°

This is a lovely activity to help children explore some coping strategies for sadness, anger, anxiety and fear.

It is a fortune teller game with some suggestions for coping.  There is one in colour, another one in black and white so the children can colour it in themselves and a blank one so the children can write their own coping strategies.

 

It’s good to talk about your mental health....

Just a little something to boost your wellbeing. This activity doesn’t have to be printed off, you can look at it on the screen everyday. You can get your family and friends to join in also.

Keep on going your doing great...😍

 

A new week, your doing great, keep up the good work ...😁

We have a little activity for you to share your feelings and emotions on your return to school, it’s a feelings jar. It’s important to share how you are feeling, good or bad as it helps us feel close to people who care and not alone. It helps us use self control when we feel mad or upset. It helps us feel better when we are mad or sad.

You can download this to print from the ELSA resource website.
