As part of our whole school, well-being approach, we use Trick Box, which is a fun personal development programme, to help children to:
Manage emotions and anxiety.
Develop communication skills and positive actions.
Create and achieve personal goals.
Build confidence and self-esteem.
In nursery, children are introduced to Doodle the Dog and through stories are encouraged to recognise their feelings and emotions.
From Reception to Year 4 children are introduced to ‘tricks’, which they can use throughout their lives to help deal with challenges.
The colour of the card shows what area the trick can help with.
