This week you will find some links to website to support your child's health and wellbeing at home. I have also attached some resources which can be printed off and completed at home. 

Self-esteem

Self-esteem helps children cope with mistakes and build their resilience. It helps them try again, even if they fail at first. As a result, self-esteem will help them do better at school, at home, and with friends. Children with low self-esteem feel unsure of themselves, so improving self-esteem, improves confidence.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness colouring is a relaxing and calming activity which can also encourage children to explore their creativity while improving fine motor skills.
