Wellbeing Activities

We recognise that sitting in front of a computer for long periods of time can be counter-productive to learning. Nine new Wellbeing Activities are uploaded every Monday morning and aim to encourage our learners to take part in activities and experiences that nurture mindfulness, creativity and physical exercise.

We recommend our learners choose a selection of Wellbeing Activities each week suitable to their age and interests. Photographs or scans of any completed activities may be shared with us by email via either ks3learning@ydaith.co.uk or ks4learning@ydaith.co.uk depending on whether your child is in Key Stage 3 or 4.

Gratitude Jars are a fun, artistic, and hands-on way for children to practice gratitude. In this activity, each child will create a special jar where they save gratitude statements at the end of the day.
