Trick box is a simple, fun and effective whole school, whole journey, emotional management and personal development programme, supporting children and young people in Early Years, Key Stages 1-5 and their families.
Evidence based and developing mental wellbeing in line with Department for Education guidelines. Trick Box programmes develop positive life habits to help deal with challenges in the here and now as well as building a repertoire of personal skills for the future.
Creating Happy Early Habits
Children learn to recognise and manage emotions as well as begin to use the little ‘tricks’ we all need to manage everyday challenges.
Building Happy Life Habits
Trick Box outcomes are built around the personal habits and skills that can help us all to take up positive life opportunities and thrive! Throughout their journey, children at Key Stages 1 and 2 develop self-coaching skills and use tricks from their Trick Box to help them navigate through life.
Teachers use the tricks in class and families are able to practise these with their children at home. Tricks can be taught in 10-15 mins during class time or we revisit them in our whole school weekly assemblies. There is a simple timetable for each year group which builds on the tricks from the previous year. The strength of the programme is in the daily practise of tricks in response to challenges arising in the here and now.
