Term 2

KS2 pupils have connected to the SCARF team for virtual lessons focused on their mental well-being and how to ensure they keep mentally healthy.

SCARF – Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship – is a whole-school approach to promoting behaviour, safety, achievement and wellbeing in our pupils. At a time when life is not how we normally know it, this is of paramount importance.

Our KS2 classes (Year 3 – 6) explored the 5 Ways To Mental Well-being

  • Be Mindful
  • Connect
  • Be Active
  • Get Creative
  • Give To Others

Discussing their ideas for each, pupils devised their own strategies to support their own mental well-being.

One of the mindfulness strategies that we learnt was the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 Technique helping pupils to restore calm in themselves and be present in the now. The simple technique involves being calm and thinking about:

  • 5 things that you can see
  • 4 things that you can hear
  • 3 things that you can touch
  • 2 things that you can smell
  • 1 thing that you can taste

After the sessions, pupils reflected on their learning and created their own ‘Five Ways To Well-being’ wheel:
