Designed for children aged 5-7 (years 1 & 2), our Brilliant Me & My Mind Course helps them to think positively and let go of perfectionism. 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.
Creating a positive mindset
Children’s reactions to situations often stem from what they’re thinking. Knowing how your mind can work for you, rather than against you, is a powerful approach to learning and life in general. Perfectionism can set in from a very young age and often stems from a fear of mistakes and judgement of others. Our Brilliant Me and My Mind Course uses the power of story to help children explore how to see things and think differently about them. What a revelation to find out that we are supposed to find new things hard and that the mistakes we make actually help us learn!
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.
Letting go of fearing mistakes
Brilliant Me & My Mind is specifically designed to help your child:
• Move away from perfectionism
• Learn to take risks and try new experiences
• Let go of fearing mistakes and failure
• Believe in their own capabilities
• Learn to think positively when faced with a challenge
• Move from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I can’t YET’
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.
