Monday 10th October 2016 is World Mental Health Day. In honour of that, we’re producing some free resources.
This 10 -15 minute assembly uses a pet theme to get pupils thinking about how they treat their pets with kindness, but maybe don’t always treat themselves the same way. It starts to get them thinking about the concept of self compassion and the teacher notes talk you through the slides.
It could easily be extended into a form time where they think about how they talk to themselves in different situations and how they would talk to a beloved pet (or a best friend) in the same situation.
This is the first assembly we’ve done, so if you use it and like it and would like more (or not!), please do let us know.
