Wellbeing Wednesday with Mrs Cocker

Wellbeing Activities

 

Once you are feeling energised, you need to have a think about what makes you special, such as your personal qualities, skills, hobbies, as well as considering things such as your likes and dislikes. Why don't you discuss this with your family to make sure you don't forget anything?

 

Once you've done this, have a go at the activity below, you could print out the sheets or design your own 'If You Really Knew Me' and write the answers to the questions.

 

Don't forget to take a couple of minutes a day to complete some Calm Me time.

Everybody Worries by Jon Burgerman

Just for fun...

 

Just for fun, here is a game called Battleships that you can play. You only need a pen and a piece of paper! The object is to “hit” your opponent’s ships on their grid by trying to guess where they are hiding.

 

How to play:

1. Start by making 2 grids that are sectioned 11 by 11. The top row is marked 1-10, the left side column is marked A-J.

2. Each player gets the following:

carrier (5 squares)

battleship (4 squares each)

destroyer (2 squares each)

cruiser (3 squares each)

submarine (3 squares)

3. Both players outline their ships on their grid; the game goes on just like the board game.

4. Each player takes it in turn to guess the other player’s coordinates. Make sure to mark down any hits and misses.

5. Play is over when all of one player’s ships have been sunk. Good luck!

Design an all about me/mood poster. This can be done on a computer or be hand drawn.

On an A4 or A3 piece of paper, draw or find on the internet pictures that represent you, this can be things that you like doing, your personality, anything goes.

Below is an example of one Mr Hill has done about himself:

As an extra challenge can you write a few pairs of words that give a clue as to what the pictures represent. For example, Mr Hill loves to play golf so for this he has written ‘fairway finder’ as you try to hit the ball on the fairway in golf. Be as creative as you can!
