Year 6 enjoyed being part of research at Reading University to develop tools for young people to develop their resilience. They visited four booths and learnt about the science behind sleep, exercise, friendship and self compassion and how these can boost resilience and wellbeing. They got to choose a range of tools to help them develop in these areas including a comic, stress ball, pedometer, reflection journal and access to a song to aid sleep. There was a lot of positive feedback from the pupils to the researchers and hopefully this will help Reading University deliver this fair more widely to young people.
