The project aims to increase your resilience by helping you to understand and develop strategies for better-informed choices when faced with negative pressures from friends and children who you play with.


Today we would like you to watch the short trailer about the project which focuses on a boy called Marcus. There is a task saved below where we would like you to research the meanings of the following words:


  1. Identify
  2. Ethnicity
  3. Values
  4. Belief
  5. Aspiration
  6. Characteristic


Please write the meanings of these words on the activity sheet and email your work to us at:

Reframing Thoughts

We all have negative thoughts and may get into patterns of negative thinking. In times of distress, these may occur more frequently, and it is easy to be self-critical and focus on the negative thoughts. Sometimes we might catastrophise a situation, making it seem worse than it really is, or we might blame ourselves for things out of our control. Recognising these thoughts and re-framing them is a way of training our brain to reduce anxiety and over-thinking.

Below is an example of how we can retrain and reframe our negative thoughts. Being able to rethink a seemingly negative situation and focus more on the positives is a key self help skill.


Negative/ Unhelpful Thought

Evidence Against This


I had an argument with Kya.






I have no friends, everyone hates me.

Sam and Ciara were nice to me and asked me to play with them.

It is good to have more than one friend to support you, like I do.


Use this reframing tool in your own life. Keep a notepad or some pages of pages safe somewhere so that when you get a negative thought you can record it in a table like the one above.

Today's topic from BOUNCE BACK.

Blame Fairly


Read the text below.


Nicki and Khan are good friends. They are in the same basketball team and play together every Saturday. Recently, their team lost a semi-final by two points and they weren't able to get into the finals. After the game, they were all disappointed, but they thought differently about why they had lost the game. Nicki said it was her fault the team had lost, because she missed an important three point shot. Nicki was really angry with herself. She was surprised to hear that Khan thought they had lost because two members of the team arrived late for the game and did not play well. Also, Khan thought it was bad luck that their team's best player was sick and couldn't play.


Blame fairly. How much of what happened was due to you, to others and to bad luck and circumstance?


  • Who or what did Nicki feel was to blame?
  • What did Khan think?

Last week we were looking at Kindness as a core value in PSHE.

During your time in isolation please keep a diary of 'Acts of Kindness'.


Every day, try to do some thing kind for someone in your family. It has to be in your household because none of us can go out until Friday 23rd October! 


Bring your 'Acts of Kindness' in to school on Friday 23rd October so that we can share what you have done. Each day record:


  1. The date
  2. Who you were kind to
  3. What you did
  4. What the results were - your family's reaction to your kind deeds


If you want to print a daily diary form you can click on the link below. If you cannot print from home, simply make a diary from plain paper.



Watch the Kindness Boomerang video again, show your family. Click on the link below.
