At Great Moor Junior School, we value the wellbeing of all members in our school community. Teaching and learning of Wellbeing is embedded within our curriculum, which is detailed in our PSHE overview. We regularly partake in activities that support the wellbeing of our pupils and families which we often share in our newsletters.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing

Research shows that no matter where a child or young person lives, their age, social or personal situation, there are ways to improve personal wellbeing.

Improving wellbeing has a direct link not only to feeling better but also functioning better. It helps with physical health and also things like performance at school and quality of life.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are simple things to do every day that can help us all to feel happier and more positive. These five ways are:

  • Connect
  • Be active
  • Take notice
  • Keep learning
  • Give

Connect: Spend time with family and friends.  Enjoy doing things together and talking to each other.

Be active:  It keeps you physically healthy, and makes you feel good

Keep learning: Try something new. Try a new hobby, or learn about something just because it interests you.

Take notice: Take a break to see how you feel. Relax and look around you or listen to music, take a few deep breaths.

Give: Do something for a friend or relation/adult, as well as making them feel good, it can make you feel good too!

The following document contains a range of activites that adults and pupils could try at home, independently or as a family. There is also an empty chart to use where you could select your own acitivities for the week.
