In Mindfulness, we focused on the topic of Positive Relationships.

Year 5 students had to choose a partner and sit directly opposite them. One person was the mindful listener, the other was the speaker. The speaker chose a topic to talk about, then afterwards they swapped roles. Students filled in a worksheet to reflect on their experiences.

In Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships, the Year 5s are focusing on the topic of Personal Strengths.

Students discussed the positive personal qualities we value in ourselves and others. They brainstormed some ideas with a partner, then drew a rough sketch which showed them doing something positive for, or with, someone else. This sketch drawn demonstrated what they believed was ‘something good’ that helps make the world a better place for someone else.
