Building Resilience – Keep Connected

Being resilient at this time is really important. As we become more resilient, we can cope better with many different situations and emotions.

We are starting by revisiting the strategy, Keep Connected.

We have been learning about the importance of having caring relationships. We have been thinking about the special people in our life. These people are our ‘Back Up Team’.
We have learned that:

 Relationships are important for our health and wellbeing

 Belonging to a group can be a good way to build friendships

 Good relationships are a two-way thing

Activity

Make a card or write a letter to someone you care about, someone who you cannot see at this time or someone who lives alone. Tell them about what you have been doing, what you have been learning together at home or what new skills you have been practising. Send them a photo. Ask an adult for their address, stick a stamp on the envelope and post it to them. Don’t tell the person about your letter and it will be a real surprise when it arrives. You never know, you may receive a letter back.
