Before the lesson
- To know how to relax in different ways
Pupils should know:
- Simple self-care techniques, including the importance of rest, time spent with friends and family and the benefits of hobbies and interests.
- That mental wellbeing is a normal part of daily life, in the same way as physical health.
Pupils needing extra support: Could be positioned closer to the teacher so that they can watch as the teacher models what they need to do.
Might need more time to think of examples of when they have laughed a lot to remember and link to how they felt at the time.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should articulate what relaxation means, demonstrating an understanding that it is not always about being calm and quiet
