Age Group - KS2
These workshops are focused around our health and well-being and how being physically healthy can improve our psychological health. The workshops look at how physical activity. laughter, and different types of food can help us feel better. We look at managing emotions and who to turn to when something is on our minds. By using cartoons and even personal stories we can build resilience in your pupils, bringing this topic to life for these young minds.
