Wellbeing Warriors

A six-week project introducing children to the idea of ‘Wellbeing’, exploring the 5 ways to wellbeing and covering physical, mental and emotional, social, educational and holistic wellbeing through drama, music, arts and crafts, games, quizzes etc. Teaching children to become Wellbeing Warriors!

In 2016, the National Association of Head Teachers warned that one-fifth of school children have a mental health problem before the age of 11 and Young Minds found that one in four young people in the UK experience suicidal thoughts. Here at the Corn Exchange, we know the phenomenal impact the arts can have on children’s confidence, sense of self and creativity and how the arts can be used as a tool for developing the 5 ways to wellbeing; making connections, being active, taking notice, learning and giving.

The project consists of 6 x 60 minute sessions.

Session 1: What is Wellbeing? An introduction.
Session 2: Physical Wellbeing (exercise and nutrition, body-image)
Session 3: Mental and Emotional Wellbeing (self-care, happy thoughts, managing emotions)
Session 4: Social Wellbeing (Friendships, Social media)
Session 5: Educational Wellbeing (stress, growth mind-set)
Session 6: Holistic Wellbeing (yoga and meditation, 365 Give)

All sessions are practical, delivered through games, quizzes and creative arts activities, both inside the classroom/hall and outside in the school grounds.
