Today's resources

Worship resource week commencing 13th July: Gratitude

Pastoral resource week commencing 13th July: As we enter into our last week of the school year who would have guessed we would be ending it socially distancing! Our first year in the new school building certainly hasn’t gone the way any of us would have planned. I look back and there have been many difficult times but there are also many things that I am very grateful for. I am grateful for friends, I am grateful for sunshine and I am grateful for my health. What are you grateful for? Try this 30 day gratitude calendar and see what changes for you- Mrs Gamon.

Pastoral resources (updated weekly)

Pastoral resource week commencing 6th July: We can all be good at looking after our friends and family. Some of us can be good at looking after people we don’t know. But are many of us very good at looking after ourselves? It is really important that we take some time and look after ourselves, doing the things we enjoy. This helps to boost positive feelings, our confidence and self-esteem. It also reminds us and others that we are important and our needs are too. Take a look at this 30 day self-care calendar and have some you time!

Pastoral resource week commencing 29th June: An unknown author said ‘Music is what feelings sound like’. There will be songs that hold many memories for us and cover many different emotions. Here is a 30 day song challenge for you to try.

Pastoral resource week commencing 22nd June: There are lots of changes happening again with some school years being back and non-essential shops beginning to open. Some of you may feel relieved and even excited about this whilst others may find this quite scary. All of these feelings are normal and to be expected. Please follow this link for some useful information. Also remember you can email in @pastoral to get some support. We are here for you https://kidshelpline.com.au/teens/issues/im-not-ready-go-back-normal

Pastoral resource week commencing 15th June: Are you feeling anxious, worried or stressed? The world around us at the moment can feel very unsettling. Not knowing when you’ll be back at school or be able to hug another human being can feel scary. Of course wider global issues such as the Black Lives Matter movement may have also bought up lots of feelings. If you feel you would like to talk to someone follow this link. This service is provided by the YMCA Downslink Group based in Brighton and Hove https://e-wellbeing.co.uk/. You can also contact our Pastoral team (pastoral@kingsschoolhove.org.uk)

March

  •  30 day LEGO challenge.

  • Live cams at zoos.https://animals.sandiegozoo.org/live-cams     https://taronga.org.au/taronga-tv

  • Setting yourself a goal and achieving it will give you a sense of control and purpose – think about things you want or need to do that you can still do at home. It could be watching a film, reading a book or learning a new skill. 

  • Think about 10 things that you are grateful for. Focusing on the positives around us helps us to become more positive. Try it as a family and have them written down where everyone can see them. 

  • Brain Break breathing:  Lie back gently on the floor with your feet out in front of you. Place your hands on your stomach. Breathe in through your nose and feel your hands rise up. As you slowly exhale, feel your hands go back down. Pretend that your stomach is waves in the ocean and your hands are a sailboat. Each time you breath in the sailboat goes up on the waves and each time you breath out the sailboat goes down on the waves. Repeat.
