These activities designed to help children become aware of their uniqueness, strengths, and interests, to improve self-esteem, explore who they are and their place in their world and support them to develop healthy relationships.

By exploring 'All About Me' we are able to remind children of their uniqueness and the things about them that make them who they are.

It can be a powerful reminder:

  • that they matter
  • that they have strengths and skills to bring to the school / class community
  • that they Belong!

The 'All About Me' activities are reflective. At first it may be difficult for some children to recognise their skills and strengths. With positive support and encouragement they can become more able to do so. 

Affirmations and tokens that refer to specific strengths, skills and successes can be tangible reminders and give them a boost if they are feeling low. 

The ‘All about me’ activities include:

  • exploring and remembering favourite things and positive experiences
  • the skills and strengths they already have
  • positive affirmations for times when they need a reminder
  • things they hope to achieve
