If there’s a young person in your family or perhaps you teach service children, then it’s worth taking a look at Little Troopers’ fantastic new secondary school resource hub to help support service children aged 11-16.
Created alongside teachers, forces families and behavioural experts, the resources offer lots of practical ideas to get your children talking about forces life in school and can be used by any secondary school – whether they have one service child or 200.
The resource hub can be downloaded for lesson plans, activity templates and teacher training information. As well as one-off military-themed lessons and activity templates covering areas such as creative writing, sports activities, events, media skills and community engagement, the Forces Life Club pack is also available on the hub.
In addition, a military child wellbeing course will be launching soon. The six-session course will provide targeted
early intervention and wellbeing support for all military children, not just those in crisis, and covers the topics of separation, deployment, house moves and living abroad, as well as personal themes of belonging, identity and mindfulness.
There’s also a primary school resource pack and wellbeing course on its website.
