Home/School - Resilience


These activities are all about changing attitudes from "I can't" to "I can". Children will learn strategies to help them bounce back and to recognise the power of positive thinking. 

Learning outcomes

Children will be able to:

  • identify what resilience is, and what it looks like
  • explain or demonstrate helpful ways to manage emotional responses to difficulties, challenges or setbacks
  • reframe unhelpful feelings about the outcome of a difficulty or challenge
  • identify and demonstrate ways to bounce back from a setback

A key way of developing resilience and dealing with difficult situations lies in how we think about them. Can you sort the helpful thinking from the unhelpful thinking?
