This is ELSA Support’s  Twinkle and shine self esteem intervention for young children. It is written for children from approx. 4 to 6 but could be used with 7 year olds too.

The Self-esteem intervention is for a group of 4 children and is led by an ELSA or a  teaching assistant. It covers emotions, relaxation, calming down techniques and learning objectives around self-esteem.  It runs for approximately 30-40 minutes, weekly for six weeks. There are also tips for areas of provision to continue or reinforce the learning done in the intervention group. There are lots of visuals, circle times and group activities along with lots of expression through drawing.

Children will learn about emotions during each session and will also learn relaxation and calming techniques through the ‘relaxation time’.  This knowledge and these skills will help them to become more emotionally literate. The coming together of a group fosters a sense of belonging and contributes towards higher self-esteem. Every opportunity should be taken to promote belonging and friendship.

This Twinkle and shine self esteem intervention follows this structure

Welcome and emotional register– welcome the pupils to the group, go over the circle time rules and talk about how they feel today.

Warm up – This is a song they will sing right through every session to help them Twinkle and shine!

Activity – this is where the pupils work on the learning objective.

Relaxation/Mindfulness – pupils are more ready to go back to class if they are relaxed and calm. This also teaches them valuable coping/relaxation skills.

Areas of provision – these are suggestions to continue learning in class

Review of the session – pupils talk about their learning experience and fill in their star on the building block.
