Trick Box helps to develop the personal habits and skills we all need to not only manage ourselves but to take up positive life opportunities and thrive!
The Trick Box K2-3 programmes have been specifically adapted for Middle schools with years 5-6 following the modified KS2 programme and years 7-8 following the KS3 Inbox programme.
The Middle school programme is a standalone resource but also builds on the First school programme and provides a foundation for the Upper school and 6th form Inbox programmes.
Throughout their KS2 journey, children develop self-coaching skills and use tricks from their Trick Box to help them manage everyday life whilst building a repertoire of personal habits and skills for the future.
Each trick takes 10-15 minutes to present in class or assembly time. Teachers use the tricks in class and parents are able to practise these with their children at home.
There are also some Trick Box extras to further enhance your programme which also link to the KS3 Inbox programme.
The Magic Minutes cards use just a few minutes of classroom time to build habits designed to promote inclusivity, enhance learning and performance as well as maximise personal happiness and wellbeing.
The Inbox programme for years 7-8 introduces habit-based tricks in 5 key areas to develop progressive personal skills and subskills in line with age-related experiences and development.
Inbox is simple to use
The year group leader pages have all the information needed to present the on-screen tricks in 10 mins or discuss the concepts further.
Build on them
Independence is key
The Inbox programme for KS3 encourages young people to build on their individual strengths and develop autonomy.
Using a self-coaching model alongside the weekly habit-based tricks helps individuals to develop solution-thinking around challenges and change and create motivating plans for the future.
Our school programme resources include easy-use manuals, step-by-step activity instructions and staff training Power Points. You have everything you need but if you’d like a little extra, we also provide additional zoom or live training.
