Primary Schools

Lessons, Assemblies & Workshops

Helping children in Primary School to better understand how their mind works will enable them to better manage themselves and their mental health throughout life. 

Using The Chimp Model, our team of Mentors can explain the neuroscience of the mind in a way that is both understandable and practical for primary age children.

Whether you are looking for a one-off assembly, pupil workshop or a longer-term programme, we are able to work with you to develop and provide engaging and fun learning that will help your students develop skills for life.

Workshops Objectives

All of our workshops and programmes will firstly introduce the cornerstones of The Chimp Model. This helps students to gain an understanding of how their mind works and what they can do to manage themselves. Some of the key points we help students to understand are:

  • Understanding the brain; that there are two thinking areas of their brain, be able to identify and name them
  • Understand that they and everyone is unique
  • Taking Responsibility; that their actions have consequences
  • Understand the importance of saying sorry and making amends
  • What being in a good place means and how to look after themselves
  • To distinguish between an emotion and a thought
  • How to recognise ‘Chimp’ language in themselves and others
  • To develop intervention strategies for themselves

To help teaching staff to support their pupil’s learning we offer a selection of companion workshops and programmes to help them adopt, apply and teach The Chimp Model to find out more visit our teacher pages.
