Life Learning at the Schools of Woolton Hill is about ...

Just as children need to learn (and be ‘taught’) things like reading and mathematics, so too do they need support, direction and modelling of the social, emotional and behavioural aspects of learning and development. By being proactive in addressing this aspect of learning from a very early age, we are promoting the rounded growth and development of our children and equipping them with vital lifelong skills.​

Six Strands to Life Learning

The Six Strands Curriculum is a tool, which has been developed and trialled, to support in promoting positive behaviours, emotions and relationships for all children. It aims to equip children with the skills, attitudes, behaviours and characteristics to help deal positively with the many and varied social and emotional contexts and challenges. 

By taking part in a Stormbreak session, children will:

  • Build resilience, overcome adversity and learn to face stress and pressure

  • Develop effective self-care to cope with anxieties and worries

  • Develop optimism, focus, persistence and perseverance

  • Improve confidence, self-esteem, self-image and self-worth. 

About Stormbreak

During the school day the children will also take part in Stormbreak sessions. Stormbreak is a registered charity founded by Dr. Martin Yelling, who by working closely with universities and teacher nationwide aims to inspire mentally healthy movement to help children become happier and healthier. 

Stormbreak aims to improve children’s mental health through movement, equipping them with sustainable, transferable skills and coping strategies to thrive during the complex demands of growth into adult life.
