Brilliant Me & My Ideas is a course designed for children aged 5-7 (years 1 & 2), that focuses on developing creative ways of thinking and approaching challenges. We aim to help children realise their ideas are brilliant and need to be shared! It is made up of 5 x 90 minute online sessions.
Each student will join the online session using ‘Zoom’ software (which can be downloaded) from their home.
Students from all countries are welcome. Course times are based on UK time and all students must be fluent in English.
Developing creative thinking
Children can often lack confidence in their own ideas and will sometimes hold back on sharing them in fear of what others might say or think. Some children believe they don’t have any good ideas. We know that’s simply not true, we all have great ideas and potential inside of us. Learning to use our imagination and to be curious is the first step to cultivating our creativity and innovation.
Each online Brilliant Me Course includes access to additional exciting activities for your child to do independently at any point during their day/week. Each of these is designed to be a fun distraction from what is going on around them. These activity sheets will be emailed to you along with a summary of the content shared during the online session each day. At the end of the week you will also be sent three follow up videos to help embed your child’s learning. Please watch these with your child in your own time and discuss the themes. These videos can be re-watched at any time to help revisit the learning and continue to develop your child’s confidence.
Believing in your ideas & your potential
Brilliant Me & My Ideas is specifically designed to help your child:
• Develop their imagination & curiosity

This course uses the power of story and fun, creative activities to help children believe in themselves. Brilliant ‘Billy the Bunny’ accompanies the children throughout the week to help them navigate their emotions in a fun and supportive environment.
