"A modern teacher educates children to value their emotions"

Haim Ginott


Spending a bit of time during the summer holidays working on your own Emotional Health and Wellbeing has got to be a worthwhile way for our kids and teens to spend a few days!

Emotional Skills for today, tomorrow, and for life!

Our Emotions are always with us, every waking and sleeping moment.

My belief and my experience tells me that we can all live a better life if we learn skills to work with and through our emotions in healthier ways.

Self-Development Themes

These will be the themes for both the Kids and the Tween/Teens.

I will differentiate the learning, teaching, and activities to be appropriate for the age and stage of each group - and of course each different age group tends to bring a whole different level of chat to the sessions.


Dreamcatchers

Wednesday 13th July

Kids 10am - 12noon

Tweens/Teens 1pm - 3pm

Exploring worries and anxieties that we all have and how to work WITH them rather that against then. 

Learning that some worries are informative and helpful, and others can have us all spinning! How can we tell the difference?

We will also exploring commonly used worry tools (dolls, monsters, crystals) and how best to use these in a way that that is helpful and sustainable.

Mini Emotional First Aid Kit

Wednesday 20th July

Kids 10am - 12noon

Tweens/Teens 1pm - 3pm

Looking into medical first aid kits and then exploring emotional ones. both of these being beneficial and helpful in our lives.

Positivity Wreaths

Wednesday 27th July

Kids 10am - 12noon

Tweens/Teens 1pm - 3pm

We will explore our natural negativity bias and how we can shift this with a range of tools and strategies. this will be supported by the creation of a Positivity Wreath, with self selected positive language and visuals. 

Together we will explore the benefits of forming positive habits such as positive self talks and a more grateful outlook on life, with all of this to work towards and developing a positive neural pathways and a more positive mindset.

Increasing / Decreasing Rainbows
