Mind Moose is an online digital platform that teaches children how to keep their minds healthy. To honour World Mental Health Day earlier this month, they produced some free resources on mental health, and let us share the following assembly for children on looking after their own wellbeing.
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.
It’s fully editable, so you can adapt it as you wish.
