Infants, Juniors, First and Primary

Building happy life habits and managing the tricky bits

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.

Primary School Children
Trick Box - First & Primary

Teachers use the tricks in class and parents are able to practise these with their children at home. Tricks can be taught in 10-15 mins during class time or in assemblies.

There’s 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.

Watch the video to learn more about how the programme works.

“Trick Box is an inspirational programme. It involves children, families and school. It is easy for teachers to teach as it is so well planned. Children love it and use it every day.”

Michelle Frost, Executive Head – Liphook Infants and juniors Hampshire

The Trick Box programme supports well being, by not only giving children strategies they can apply in and out of school but also by providing support for parents and carers that they can use in the home. It is this whole child approach that is so powerful.”

Dan Hunwick, Head Teacher – Puddletown First School Dorchester
