Develop mastery in maths and build self-esteem | Discussing & Reasoning Resource

Develop mastery in maths and build self-esteem | Discussing & Reasoning Resource

10 PIECE DOWNLOAD ✔️ Improve mastery skills, develop self-esteem and encourage positive thinking. ✔️ Create engaging and thought-provoking discussions. ✔️ Provide opportunities for all learners to develop reasoning skills and build self-esteem. ✔️ Perfect for small group interventions and whole class lessons. Life By Shape resources can help improve mastery skills in two ways: showing how images can be used to represent problems or ideas giving an opportunity for children to discuss and reason Each Life By Shape resource included in this package shows words of inspiration and motivation represented by an image of shape. Using images to represent Each image has been designed to represent (or show) a motivational message. The key here is for children to try and imagine that each shape within an image represents an individual person. Once children understand this concept, the discussions really start flowing. Discussing & Reasoning Here are some possible questions that children could be asked to generate some discussions. How does the image relate to the words? Why do you think the bottom left square is different? And what could this represent? Why is the bottom left square a different colour to the rest? Why are all of the other shapes in a perfect pattern? If you were one of these squares, which one would you be? It’s important to remember that there does not have to be a right answer. The point of this is to give children an opportunity to express their thoughts through discussions and reasoning by ‘agreeing’ or ‘disagreeing’ with other children. How can Life By Shape resources help to build self-esteem and develop positive thinking? Each Life By Shape resource has a message of inspiration or motivation for children. Combined with discussions, all types of learners can access and understand important messages to build self-esteem and develop positive thinking.

PSHE: New PSHE 2018-19 Part 2

10 hours of new PSHE lessons on some of the most pertinent and pressing issues facing students in 2018/19. These topics have been identified by the PSHE Association as essentials for the coming year and so this bundle has been planned following their recommendations. This is part two of a two part pack. PART ONE All 10 lesson packs are complete with at least one hour-long powerpoint, accompanying differentiated worksheets, clip links with questions, plenaries, clear LOs, starters and engaging, varied main task activities.All are well differentiated to three levels throughout to enable clear evidence of progress for all students. These lessons have been selected to be in this bundle as they all focus on relatively new issues or ones which need further awareness amongst young people in an ever-changing world full of mental health issues, new technology, crime and potentially tough futures which lie ahead. These resources have been highly-rated individually by TES users, follow the same consistent format and are easy to follow. There is zero extra work required, although each lesson is still completely editable too. I use all of these myself as a Head of PSHE and Citizenship and I really hope you find them excellent value. I’ve put literally months of time into this to make these lessons top quality for my own school team. I have ‘One Year of PSHE’ Packs for Years 7, 8, 9 and KS4.

Positive Postcards

Positive Postcards

The two images can be printed back to back in colour on white card. The front of the positive postcard shows a superhero holding up a rainbow with the words ‘Power of Positivity’. The writing side of the postcard includes a positive poem to encourage children to believe in themselves and boost their confidence. There is space to write a short message as well as an address which can be sent home or it could be the class name and school address. I used these for several purposes: Improve mental health and well-being. Engage children with behaviour problems catching them doing something postive. As a reward system. Given to children who have low self-esteem and confidence. If used in the class room rather than sent home, I would leave it in the child’s place at the end of the day so it was a surprise for them in the morning. Please note: The cover image only shows part of the postive postcard logo.

Pupil Well being group full planning and resources

This is a plan of 8 sessions for pupil well being. I have planned it for KS2 but could easily be adapted for KS1 or more vulnerable KS3 pupils. I have written them using some ideas from Thrive and Nurture group training and some other, wider reading (some of the happiness resources are from Relax Kids and can be downloaded for free. Everything else I have made myself). Sessions address: helpful and unhelpful thoughts, happiness, being in nature and how this helps us, having a healthy body (exercise), superheroes - celebrating being us, how our friends help us, healthy bodies (diet - cooking, including recipes) and developing imagination and increasing independence.

Match it! - emotional literacy, emotional intelligence, mental health, emotions

Match it! - emotional literacy, emotional intelligence, mental health, emotions

This is a matching game using emotions from different nationalities. Of course it has the underlying message that we all feel emotions no matter who you are, where you live or whatever your skin colour is. Included in the pack: A game board A feelings mat in colour and black and white worksheets covering all the emotions shown in boy version and girl version Each child throws a die and moves that number of places. If they land on a ‘child’ they must match that emotion to their mat. They can circle it on their mat with a dry wipe pen. Encourage them to name the emotion. This could be extended to ‘Tell me a time when you felt like that’. If they land on an instruction then they must move that number of places either forwards or backwards. The winner is the person who has circled the most emotions on their mat when everyone has reached the end of the game board. The feelings mat could also be used as an emotional register or a prompt for including emotions in their writing. There is a set of worksheets for each emotion (boy and girl version) to explore the child’s emotion in more detail. It is simply drawing a picture and writing a sentence or two.

Emotions Intervention - Mental Health, emotional intelligence, emotional literacy

Emotions Intervention - Mental Health, emotional intelligence, emotional literacy

This intervention is written for a group of six children and is led by an ELSA or teaching assistant. It covers recognising, labelling and expressing the six basic emotions. It is written for children from 4-7 but could also be useful for children with autism or special needs. The sessions last for approximately 40 to 60 minutes. The intervention covers the six basic emotions of happy, sad, angry, scared, surprised and disgusted. A pre and post assessment is filled in by the class teacher at the beginning and end of the intervention. The assessments we use are enclosed with this pack. These assessments cover other areas of emotional literacy and social skills but are a good indicator of any other problems that the child may have. Please choose which ones you want to use. You may have other generic assessments that you use but it is important to try and track progress however you choose to do it. Often when a child takes part in this type of intervention other skills are developed too. For example social skills, sharing, co-operating, teamwork and self-esteem to name a few. It is a good idea to keep a book, like a learning journey to stick the children’s work in. This is a brilliant way of sharing with parents and teachers things that the children are doing with you. All the paper resources are included in this pack. You will need a large sheet of paper for week 6 and a cuddly teddy and hoops for week 2. Learning objectives are as follows: I can recognise and name the six basic emotions I can understand the reasons why I might feel different emotions I can give examples of when I felt happy and sad I can give examples of when I felt angry and scared I can give examples of when I felt surprised and disgusted I can tell you about some of the physical sensations I get when I feel an emotion

Are you feeling anxious? - Mental health

Are you feeling anxious? - Mental health

A great little visual for children to start scaling their anxiety and using some calming techniques to try and calm down. This is geared towards tests! Lots of children do feel anxious before a test. Try asking them to scale how anxious they are then to try one of the techniques. Do they feel less anxious now?
