Well-Being Week 10:  MEANING (by John Fardon, TaMHS Northamptonshire)

Welcome to our last Wellbeing Boost, which is about ‘Meaning – being part of something bigger.’ This could mean that we recognise something outside or inside ourselves that gives us a sense of purpose or meaning. For adults it could be a vocation, a calling or a faith. For children it could be about being part of an organisation that is bigger than the individual child, such as cubs, groups of children that love the same activities like Forest School or being part of a group that wants to make a difference to society. Have a look at this film clip.

https://confidentparentsconfidentkids.org/2017/11/30/in-search-of-purpose/   It is hard enough for us as adults to know what gives meaning or purpose to our lives, although for some of us it is clear; for children I would see it as part of our role as teacher or parent to help them discover what that might be.

Help the children to see how they are connected with the world around them.

  • Ask them to draw a cartoon picture of themselves in the centre of an A4 page, then to draw connections (lines) with family, friends, activities and things about the world or universe they are really interested in. For those that don’t want to draw they could make lists.
  • Ask the children what they would like to do when they grow up. How might they be able make a difference to the world?
  • Ask the children to talk about what they already do to make a difference, even if it is to one person. Read this story to see what making a difference might mean. (Have a look at Protective Behaviours too!) https://www.protectivebehaviours.org/protective-behaviours-resources-training-room/stories/68-the-starfish-story

           Children could create their own coat of arms representing what has meaning for them in life, or a collage of images drawn or copied online.

 We're also really excited to tell you all about our Big Write for Black History Month. This year, we chose 'Bold Black Women' as our theme and each class chose an inspirational woman to study. Owlets chose Rosa Parks, Year 1 learned about Mary Seacole, Year 2 found out about Ruby Bridges, Year 3 chose Katherine Johnson, Year 4 learned all about Tessa Sanderson and Years 5 and 6 were inspired by the life and works of Maya Angelou. We all wrote factfiles and reports then made a video celebrating the lives of our chosen person and the whole school voted on who they thought had made the greatest impact and contribution. Having learned about all these amazing women and their contributions, it was a very close contest and the vote was won by the Owlets' presentation on the life and achievements of Rosa Parks. Well done to everyone for working so hard on the Big Write and to Mrs Campbell for organising it! 

Thank you again for supporting Titchmarsh Church of England Primary School! Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you very soon!

Mr Carlyle, Miss G and all the Titchmarsh staff team.
