1. Develop emotional literacy
Children will develop the capacity to recognise their feelings in the moment and to engage in behaviours that help to manage tricky emotions.
2. Release tension and stress
Children can release built-up tension through physical activities and breathing techniques designed to calm the body and mind.
3. Promote positive emotions
The activities cultivate creativity, imagination, movement, and mindfulness, and in doing so,
elicit happiness, fun and laughter.
4. Increase focus
The grounding techniques help to increase focus and concentration, enabling children to approach the 'doing' aspects of their lives.
5. Practice self-compassion
Children are encouraged to nurture themselves through a range of activities that invite self-kindness and self-care.
6. Enhance self-esteem
Children develop their growth mindset with a 'can do' attitude and increased confidence in coping with tricky feelings.
