PSHE KS2: The Brain Lab

A collection of short films on mindset and mindfulness. Five of the films introduce us to one of the five steps to wellbeing, with the sixth film - 'The Brain House' - using animation to look at what is happening inside our brain when we feel 'big' emotions.

You'll also find below a video guide for teachers, which introduces the concept of mindsets and mindfulness and suggests ways the films can be used in class.

The films explore the five steps to wellbeing:

  • Connect with others

  • Be active

  • Give to others

  • Take notice

  • Keep learning

These short films are suitable for teaching PSHE at KS2 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 2nd Level in Scotland.
