Building happy life habits and managing the tricky bits
Starting school is a big step towards independence.
There are all sorts of fantastic opportunities and lots of new people to meet. It is also a time of self-discovery alongside comparison with peers around academic, physical and social skills. This sense of self continues to develop within a whole range of experiences.
Trick Box programmes help to develop the happy life habits we all need to enjoy life and thrive whilst building the personal and emotional skills needed to deal with challenge and change.
The Drew programme is included as part of the package for Infants/First and Primary schools and is mapped to key Early Learning Goals. Throughout EYFS2 and KS1 the programme helps children to understand and talk about their emotions as well as develop key personal skills in our 4 Trick Box areas: Confidence, Calm, Communication and Creativity.
Children meet Drew through 4 rhyming, interactive books and fun activities. They learn to empathise with Drew and are introduced to the foundation tricks of the programme, which are built on throughout KS1-2. Children begin to recognise and manage their own responses as they begin to use the little ‘tricks’ we all need to get the most from life whilst managing everyday challenges.
