Mental Health and Well-being at Rowan Park School

The following resources have different activities for the children to complete that focus on resilience and mental well-being, especially important during these uncertain times.

 

Stay Safe everybody!

 

We also encourage you to take a few minutes of mindfulness and 'Calm Time' relaxation activities and exercises throughout the week. Please follow the links below to access stories, activities and 'Calm Time' exercises with your children: 

 

Garden yoga is a great way of spending time outside as well as being active which is good for mental well-being! 

 

 

Breathing techniques are useful to relieve stress and anxiety during 'Calm Time'. Take 5 breathing is one strategy we can use anywhere and anytime using just your hands.

 

 

At Rowan Park School, we are committed to supporting the emotional health and well-being of our pupils and staff.  We take the view that positive mental health is everybody’s business and that we all have a role to play.  

 

At our school we:

  • help children to understand their emotions and feelings
  • help children socially to form and maintain relationships
  • promote self esteem
  • encourage children to be confident
  • help children to develop emotional resilience and to manage setbacks

 

Pupils in school have been taking part in well-being friendship sessions. Within the session we focus on building pupils' self-esteem and understanding of emotions. 

 

We use 'Sparky' the Worry Monster to help us in sessions!

 

Within this session the pupils have been introduced to mindfulness sessions where the pupils look at breathing techniques and their environment around them. We play calming music and use the yoga mats and breathing ball to help us!
