Mental Health & Wellbeing Workshop

Our customers asked us to develop this new workshop to help them address the mental health and wellbeing challenges that children face, and deliver the new Relationships and Health Education curriculum.

By using the same A-life hands-on style of teaching, that enables children to delve into their learning, children will understand how mental & physical health are intricately linked, and the importance of looking after (and improving) their mental health & wellbeing.
 
We are really excited about how the teaching in this workshop will help you create a culture of wellbeing in your school.

What a session looks like

This will follow a similar pattern to our Healthy Workshop, a very hands-on and interactive session that engages the children as they explore the various stations and activities. The stations are designed around the evidence-based ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’, which are the 5 keys that have been recognised to improve mental wellbeing in children and adults. We have called these keys  GetCALM, standing for: 
 

Get your 5 a day

  • get  Giving
  • get  Connected
  • get  Active
  • get  Learning
  • get  Mindful

 

We have carefully tied in about 90% of the new RHE 2020 curriculum into this workshop. With learning, fun and sustainability at the heart of what we do. 
 

Activity Stations

After a quick introduction by the A-life coach children visit each activity in their small group. Each activity kicks off with a short video starring Brainy our fun character who has many questions! Then the small group are set off on a timed challenge with a huge mixture of audio, visual, kinesthetic learning, including the latest technology for maximum retention. Here are some of the challenges to give you a taster:
  • Explore different emotions and looking after yourself, respectful and empathetic relationships with others
  • Learn about being safe, basic first aid and where to go for / how to get help 
  • Take part in challenges, solve scenarios by working as a team to complete tasks
  • Enjoy Virtual Reality & Immersive Audio experiences to help children take notice of the world around them
  • Take part in a fun physical activity challenge (this can also be used at home for the whole family)
  • Explore sensory stations to tune into and reconnect with their senses
  • Use puzzles and other hands-on activities to learn about relationships and that connecting with others is key to mental wellbeing

We are also very keen to develop connections with parents/carers and teachers so they are able to support the children with this crucial topic of mental wellbeing. Parent Workshops available during school and/or after school.
