FREE Wellbeing Resources for Schools

FREE Wellbeing Resources for Schools

With wellbeing continuing to be very high profile and Children’s Mental Health Week taking place very soon (between 6th-12th February), we’re launching our free Wellbeing topical pack today.

It includes wellbeing resources for primary schools to help support pupils’ mental health. And is a pack you, as a teacher, can dip into whenever you feel a child is struggling, or use class-wide to promote general positive mental health.

What’s in the Wellbeing topical pack?

The pack includes:

  • a fact sheet about wellbeing
  • an explanation of the ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ including the importance of connecting
  • a feelings chart
  • an activity to help your pupils think about their feelings
  • mindful colouring-in templates
  • a ‘Connection Bingo’ activity
  • an acts of kindness tracker

How can Busy Things support your pupils’ wellbeing?

As well as the wellbeing resources within our special topical pack, we have several activities on Busy Things that lend themselves to promoting good wellbeing.

Feelings graphs

Feelings graph using the Busy Graph Maker

Find out how your pupils are doing on any given day by using our ‘Busy graph maker’ to see who feels happy, sad, scared or angry.

Identify potential problems and trends to follow up later.

Alternatively, you can give them agency over their own PE lesson, getting them to choose the sport they’ll be playing, again using one of our graphs.

Interactive games

Through ‘Eco worm world’, the children can understand what the worms need to stay happy and healthy.

Taking the learnings from the activity, can the children think about their own needs? Do they need more physical things to be happy and healthy? What do they need emotionally?

Calming activities

Many of the activities on Busy Things are calming in themselves, so some children may like to play them to reground themselves.

Some we would suggest are below:
– Animal maze
– Pretty Things: Busy blocks (right)
– Bubbles – Expressions

They also build children’s confidence when they may be feeling insecure about their abilities, as even novices can quickly get exciting results.


We hope this blog has given you some ideas about how you can monitor your pupils’ mental health and promote good wellbeing in your class.
