Lever 5 – Space
My Special Space
This activity encourages pupils to explore the spaces that are important to them, how they make them feel, and how they can adapt their environment to boost their emotional wellbeing.
Students deserve to experience joy and to be engaged if they are to feel secure and positive about being in school again. Being back in school may be a welcome relief for some, but it could be challenging for others. To feel secure and positive about returning to the school environment, children need to feel ownership over their spaces. ‘Space’ refers not just to the physical space they inhabit, but also an atmosphere where it is safe to share their opinions and feelings.
