(You do not have to do a poster for all of these words - choose 3 or 4 words).


You may like to use a thesaurus to help you. There is a link to an online thesaurus below.

Plenary: Look at the Wellbeing Challenges below. How many challenges can you complete this week?

1. Sad - Put the words on a scale from 'least sad' to 'most sad.'

3. Frustrated - Put these words on a scale from 'least frustrated' to 'most frustrated.'

4. Scared - Put these words on a scale from 'least scared' to 'most scared.'

Read the information below about idioms.

Activity: Research what the idioms on the slides below mean and then create posters of these idioms - drawing or explaining what the sound like vs. what they actually mean.

For example: drawing someone jumping over the moon vs. someone with a huge smile on their face.

Wednesday: Watch Jessi, who is autistic, talk about what helped her to cope with her worried about moving on to secondary school (see link below).

Activity: Write a brief sentence about what helps you to feel OK. Draw a picture of it, e.g. Listening to music helps me feel calm. / Remembering a silly joke my grandad told me makes me feel happy.

Read through the information below.

Activity: Choose 6 distraction techniques that you know will help you to feel better or you would like to try out.

Create your own distraction cards using the template below.

Thursday: Watch the video below.

Activity: Write a letter to yourself for you to read when you are having a bad day. It might be a note to yourself to remind you that you are brilliant, unique, have lots of talents and are loved.


Look at my example below to help you.


Use this as an opportunity to show off your Year 6 writing!

For example:

•If I were you, I would…

•I know things are tough right now; they will improve.
•Today may be a bad day: there may be lots of things upsetting on you.
•You can/will get through this!
•When you are finding things tough, focus on the positives.
•Today, just like every other day, will pass.
Challenge: Can you use some of the idioms from Tuesday's lesson in your writing?
