Research has shown that the pandemic has had a profound negative effect on the mental health of many of our pupils (Young Minds 2020). It is essential that we reflect on how our English curriculum can support children’s wellbeing. Using story and picture books can provide and ideal platform for exploring these issues.
This session will provide teachers and TAs with:
- Great book recommendations for supporting children’s mental health in the primary classroom.
- Activities linked to stories to support conversations around wellbeing.
This session will be £40 (+VAT). This includes 1 additional teacher or TA from your school to attend at no extra cost if you wish. Choice of dates and times:
Monday 22nd March 2021 4pm-5.30pm or
Tuesday 13th July 2021 1.30pm – 3pm
