New bite-sized wellbeing resources

Dear Ms Wilson,

It's important that young people know how to deal with different emotions, which is why we’ve created two new bite-sized curriculum-linked activities to support 11-16 year-olds in dealing with worry and unhelpful thoughts.

Developed with teachers, these short, flexible resources are underpinned by the five ways to wellbeing and cover the mental wellbeing strand in Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) and Health Education.

  • The worry tree
    The worry tree tool introduces students to self-care actions which they can use to help them let worries go.
  • Unhelpful thoughts
    Students explore and identify unhelpful thoughts and then use real-life scenarios to practise 'reframing' them.

Both lesson plans include engaging animated films to help students visualise the techniques and include top tips for teachers delivering them virtually.

Encourage your teachers to sign up to the School Zone and download the resources.

Help young people build meaningful connections

At a time when young people need it most, help them to build and maintain good connections using our Building connections resource.

Featuring film content co-created with young people, the lesson plan encourages students to recognise that everybody feels lonely at times, and that they can manage loneliness by making meaningful connections. Students are also asked to think about how they can look out for others who might be feeling lonely.

Teachers can download this free resource, suitable for Year 6, KS3 and KS4, on the School Zone.
