Discussion question: Ask pupils to talk about what the word resilient means. Ask them questions around when they have had to be resilient. Can they give an example?
Active learning: In the hall, children will play a game of traffic lights. Encourage the children to travel in different directions. Shout out a different colour every so often and children will have to stop and stand completely still (red), stop and jog on the spot (amber), move again (green).
Use a selection of challenge cards (8-10 depending on the group size).
Split the children into groups of 2 or 3 (depending on class size) and place each group on a station with a visual resource card. Ask the children to solve the problem on the card within a time frame set by the teacher. Rotate the children to enable them to access all stations over the course of the lesson. Each card provides information on how to support differentiation with each task.
