What will a school receive?
A school receives access to an online portal where you will find lesson plans, resources, downloads and staff training. It will also receive physical resources, such as the character cards, emotion cards, picture books and journals.
How does the content work?
Gentle and thoughtful child-led lesson plans, activities and habit forming interventions that encourage self awareness and empathy.
Individual activities using creative literacy objectives such as poetry, letter writing, journalling, etc.
Activities that empower the class to reflect, share and listen to one another.
Class projects to develop unity and that can work to include the whole school community.
Activities and resources that encourage families to engage with their children's learning.
How many sessions are involved?
The Culture of the Heart is not a single intervention but is a commitment over time to develop child and staff wellbeing. Each culture contains lesson plans and habit-forming interventions. The lessons have been designed to support the existing curriculum, easily fitting into current academic planning.
Across the year, the content introduces practical and creative exercises. These encourage the children to explore their own thoughts and beliefs about the kinds of behaviour which create safe relationships and happy communities. The resource empowers the children to share these thoughts with their peers and work together on a shared response.
