Supporting the continuity of learning in SPHE and Wellbeing at home

Our Primary PDST Wellbeing Associates  have come together to share how they have been supporting continuity of learning in SPHE and to support the wellbeing of their pupils during school closures. They are teaching all over Ireland in a variety of contexts and class levels. We hope these video clips can help you to promote SPHE and Wellbeing at home while schools are closed and when they re-open. Consider how these examples could be adapted to meet the needs of your school context to complement each pupil's SPHE experience and to support their wellbeing.
