What does being resilient mean?

Resilience is about developing inner strength and courage and growing our ability to keep trying and 'bounce back' from difficult situations.

Stormbreak resilience - 'classroom cross country'

Activity

Do you remember a time when you have been resilient?

Draw a picture of when you were resilient and write a sentence about it. If you feel confident you may also like to share your experience with a friend or even with the class.

Put this picture in a special place in your book so it can remind you to be resilient when things get difficult.

It's OK to make a mistake. A mistake is an adventure in creativity...
Be resilient and turn your mistakes into something magical.
