Each week we’re bringing you fresh ideas to help children and young people build resilience and show their kindness during COVID-19. This week we’re focusing on first aid and mental health, and the importance of looking after yourself and others.
Here’s a few of our favourite activities from our latest set of resources – First aid and kindness.
- Kindness and coping - This Mental Health Awareness Week encourage young people to look after their own wellbeing and support others with theirs. These quick activities develop coping skills in order to build resilience, encourage kindness and confidence to give first aid
- First aid at home - No first aid kit? No problem! Did you know that many everyday items could help in a first aid emergency, like a tea towel to help with a bleed. Encourage learners to find items from around the home and understand how they could help in a first aid emergency.
We have also created a parent pathway on our new learning site, First aid champions.
