Waves of Wellbeing – Coral – Learning and GrowingVisit The Coral’s Resource Hub Now!
This week is our final week of Waves of Wellbeing!
We have been amazed by how well everyone has responded to our Wellbeing scheme this time around and we are so glad that you have all enjoyed it.
For our final week, we will be taking a look at Coral and what it can teach us about learning and growing.
This theme is useful for being able to look back at all of the prior weeks and seeing how it is that we have grown in relation to our Wellbeing skills, as well as how we can continue to learn and grow as we move forward.
Our Waves of Wellbeing animations are available to access through our Wellbeing Hub.
Our wonderful narrator, Nial, who you may remember from our series of Wellbeing Superheroes animations, is back to help guide you and your classroom through the lesson of that week’s sea creature.
We will also be publishing versions of our animations without any narration. This could be useful for those of you who would like to go through the animations yourself and have either yourself or the children in your classroom narrate parts of the animation.
Our fully interactive PowerPoint shows combine everything that you need to teach the lesson, including the animated story, talk and task to help explain the lesson theme, mindful music to use when the children complete the mindful journal, and more!
Our PowerPoint Shows have been designed to give you and your classroom a better way of seeing all of our main learning sequence resources in one place.
The PowerPoint has handy buttons, allowing you to skip to the animated story, the talk and task section or the journal.
Our animated story is also included within the PowerPoint Show which introduces the children to Ruby the Diver, the Coral and the theme of Learning and Growing.
The talk and task section will help the children think about how they have developed their wellbeing skills and learn how they can continue to do so. They will be reminded that “mental wellbeing is a normal part of daily life, in the same way as physical health“.
Finally, the Journal section plays mindful music and a simple animation, for you to play whilst the children calmly complete their journal and colouring tile exercise for the week – just make sure to be logged into your Teacher’s Pet account to ensure seamless access when clicking through.
Our detailed teacher packs, are brand new to our wellbeing series and combine a whole host of useful information for planning, including:
- links to learning goals,
- a teaching sequence
- key vocabulary
- and much more
Alongside all of this to help you plan your lesson, our teacher pack also includes detailed questions and discussion, a class task, supporting resources, and a differentiated script to use with our unnarrated animated story.
Our fully differentiated Journal combines mindful colouring and a simple journal-style activity; all about learning and growing
Alongside all of our fantastic main learning sequence resources, we’ve also been hard at work to create some brilliant additional differentiated resources.
All of these resources below are absolutely fantastic and will enable you and your class to further learn and discuss the lessons from the Coral.
Our Minibook is brand new to our wellbeing series and is a fun addition to our regular resources, providing a mini-book for children to fold and make, sharing lots of fun facts and information, all about the Coral, the focus of this week’s wellbeing theme of Learning and Growing.
Weekly Display Focus
You may have noticed our Door Poster, which was part of our Essential Pack, has a whole bunch of empty space; that wasn’t on accident.
It was to accommodate for our weekly released Display Focus which includes your mini bubble to add to our free Door Display.
Don’t forget this week’s theme is all about Learning and Growing, so make sure to go back through the weeks and their individual wellbeing skills to remind the children about what it is they’ve learnt.
As well as this, our Display Focus also includes a simple “lift the flap” display which shows the children the Coral, the theme for the week and the children can meet Ruby the Diver, as she asks them “How does learning new skills make you feel?”.
An old favourite of our Wellbeing resources is back
Our Colouring Tiles for EYFS/KS1 and KS2 are back and offering the children a simple colouring activity of the Coral.
Now, utilising the prior 12 weeks, all of the tiles can be joined together to create one large ‘Under The Sea‘ image which could be put up as a large display in the classroom.
Once again I want to personally extend a hand and thank every single person who has followed along with our Waves of Wellbeing scheme each week with your class.
Don’t forget you can send in your class’s Waves of Wellbeing Displays to us via our social media pages, we love seeing how schools and classes have joined in each week – whether that be adding to their Weekly Display Focus or Colouring Tile Display.
(Don’t forget, all twelve weeks can be combined into one larger display)
