Believe is a six-week confidence course for pupils in years 3 and 4 (and can be tailored to year 2). The course has been written by Lise and has had great feedback from teachers and pupils alike.
“Lisé has been running a Believe group with children in my class this term. The children thoroughly enjoyed attending the sessions and eagerly awaited the next session, asking many times if Lisé was coming into school today. I have really noticed a change in the children, they seem more confident and happy in themselves. Having the space to talk about their feelings and worries has helped them to learn about themselves, how to cope with situations and know that they have been listened to. The children loved the activities Lisé did with them and I have seen the children get them out of their trays to show their friends and remind them of what they learnt in the session. I am really grateful to the time and energy Lisé put into this group to make the children feel comfortable, safe and secure in order to build their confidence and believe in themselves. She built such a lovely rapport with them and they will really miss meeting with her every week. If you have children who need to be reminded how special and amazing they are, this is the group for them.”
Here’s what some of the pupils thought…
“My favourite thing was everything and it helped me be confident and I enjoyed all of the things we did, especially making paper chain friends and learning to relax.
“I really love it. I recommend it for a friend. I so enjoyed it. It was so much fun and lovely.”
“Thank you. The best thing I done is the activity where we learned that we are unique, loved, special and important. I am amazing and I’m going to do amazing things and I will believe in myself and be the best I can possibly be.”
“The best thing I enjoyed was when we made the stress ball because it really helps me. I have learned to believe in myself and to not think that I am not special and not loved. Every week we done something to increase our confidence. Being with Lise really helps and it is the best thing ever”
