Let’s talk about it! The importance of mindset at Oakmeadow

Today we welcomed a visiting roadshow  called ‘Let’s talk about it!’ all themed around having a positive mindset at school, and ways we can deal with negative thoughts in a calm and relaxed manner.  Some things we learned were:

When things get too much/you are worried/ stressed/don’t know what to do…

STOP and try these coping strategies:

singing

Joking

Spending time with family and friends

Deep breathing

Do something you enjoy

Worry control -zap worries

Talking to someone else, or using thumbs up/down (talking without words) when we can’t find the right words to express ourselves.

Ask your children what they learnt from this, and which strategies they think are useful!
