Wellbeing: Looking forward

This final topic in Mental Health sees the children reflect on everything they have learned to equip them for the future, including looking at how to resolve conflicts and how to show resilience by employing a growth mindset. Pupils look at different relaxation strategies as well as other ways they can take responsibility for their physical and emotional wellbeing and consider what kind of person they want to be.
