Bereavement

 

 

All

This intervention is designed to help children understand more about their thoughts and feelings when someone important to them has died. In the first two weeks the child will make a memory box to store items belonging to that person. The following weeks will be spent creating a book of memories about their special person, which can be a source of great comfort, especially for a child who is worried they may forget the person who has died.

The child will also have tasks set to do at home to encourage the family to talk openly about the person who has died.

Upper KS2

The underlying theme for this intervention is ‘I make a difference’. I sessions 1 and 2 the children make an ’I make a difference’ jar. Each time the child feels they have made a difference to someone they write on a slip of paper and pop it in the jar. These are read out during the session to reinforce being kind and helpful. Children will also learn about emotions and this will help them become more emotionally literate.

Exploring Emotions Through Art

KS2

In the early 20th Century, there developed an art movement called "Expressionism," in which the artist was more interested in expressing an emotional experience. The art work could be a record of what the artist was feeling at the time of making it, and it could also bring about emotional reactions in the viewer. Through these sessions, children will explore how a different group of artists illustrate emotion in their art. This will help the children explore their own strong emotions and how to express them in a safe way.

Nursery Rhymes

F2

This intervention would be good for all children in F2 to access on a rolling 6 week programme. The sessions are based on familiar Nursery Rhymes and target specific emotions and how to deal with these. For example, Incy Wincy Spider found it tricky to climb up the spout! In session 3, children will have the opportunity to talk about what they find tricky and the importance of perseverance. This intervention links brilliantly with our Archie values
