Joyful January Wellbeing Club Planning - Elsa Support

Joyful January Wellbeing Club Planning

This is our Joyful January Wellbeing Club Planning.

Many of you are running wellbeing groups at lunchtimes and after school. You will find lots of resources to help you do this from our free resource section.

Of course you could also use this planning as part of your ELSA role too. They could even be used whole class if needed. Give the link to your teachers!!!

Each month I will release a month’s worth of planning with links to resources that you can use. The planning will be released before the beginning of each month to give you chance to gather the resources.

Objective for sessions: To find ways to bring joy into your life

Throughout January, we’ve designed four easy sessions for you to enjoy each week. In the planning, you’ll find hyperlinks to all the resources you need, and the best part is, they’re all absolutely free!

Instilling a habit of finding joy in everyday life sets a foundation for long-term wellbeing. Pupils who learn to appreciate and seek joy are more likely to carry this positive mindset into adolescence and adulthood.

Joyful activities have a natural stress-reducing effect on children. Engaging in activities they love, whether it’s playing, creating, or spending time outdoors, helps alleviate stress and promotes a sense of calmness.

Here’s what the Joyful January session looks like:

  1. Welcome and Feelings Check-in: Start by asking pupils how they’re feeling, and they can pinpoint their emotions using the chart you’ll print out.
  2. Main Activity: Dive into happiness and joy with activities linked in the resources. These are all hands-on, whether it’s crafting, drawing, games or colouring. Plus, there’ll be minimal writing involved.
  3. Relaxation: Wrap up with a calming activity to ease pupils back into their routine. It’s the perfect way to transition back to class smoothly.

Joyful January is part of our wellbeing year calendar resources.
