Magic Blox 4 Primary Schoolers Grade 1 – Grade 6 (ages 6-11 years)

 

The Magic Blox 4 Primary Schoolers programme supports all children by equipping them with a strong emotional foundation as well as the skills and tools to lead positive, happy, mindful lives.

The programme is designed for children between the ages of 6 – 11 years old and all Magic Blox workshop groups consist of a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 children of mixed ages.

The Magic Blox 4 Primary Schoolers programme is presented over a series of six 2 hour workshops.

The programme starts with workshop 1: Orientation, followed up by 5 consecutive workshops scheduled once a week for a 6 week period. Each workshop builds on the previous and concludes with the final workshop or graduation, where the children and parents attend together.

The skills and concepts are taught with lots of fun games and activities, worksheets, creativity with arts and crafts, visualisation, imagination exercises and affirmations.

Course Plan

i-am-what-i-amOrientation Workshop

In the first workshop it is important to introduce a safe environment of openness and sharing. The children are introduced to the facilitator and each other through games. The children are encouraged through the facilitator to get to know each other to gain the most benefit out of the course.

The children are introduced to affirmations and visualisation skills. Affirmations direct the mind towards picturing desirable outcomes. Children are thrilled to discover that they have the power to make their dreams and goals a reality by changing their thoughts simply through their own words. Visualisation teaches children how to develop their attention skills and define their imaginations. They can also use this skill to help calm themselves in difficult situations and create positive images to motivate them to get what they want out of life.

In workshop two the children gain an understanding of thoughts, and the concept of forgiveness by creating their own personal affirmations. They learn through stories, using arts and crafts and experiencing other types of visualisation exercises. The facilitator teaches positive thinking techniques, helping the children realise that it is important that affirmations are created using strong positive statements. The workshop keeps children engaged through fun activities that demonstrate the principles and reinforce the end goals.

In workshop three, the children will gain an understanding of self concept. Self concepts are the way we feel and think about ourselves and are influenced by other people’s opinions of us. Each child will create a body map drawing of themselves through which they will gain insights into their own self-perception. The facilitator conducts a visual demonstration of negative messaging showing the effect it can have on the self concept process. The workshop concludes with a visualisation about love.

In workshop four the children will learn skills to help them connect with and understand their family better, by gaining an awareness of their own environment as well as that of each member of their family. They will create a “magic box” as a keepsake for home to treasure something special and meaningful to them. They also gain an understanding of the things that make the members of their family happy or sad by doing a family role play. The workshop will close with a guided visualisation of seeing mom and dad as little children.

In workshop five the children will learn to identify their own emotions, feelings and fears. They will learn skills to identify and specifically deal with the feeling of anger, and learn techniques to cope with and release this anger. The facilitator leads games and integrates movement and music to get the children to demonstrate emotions and feelings. Trust as an emotion is highlighted through a fun pairing game and the workshop is closed with a visualisation designed to help children let go of worry and feel safe

Parents and children attend this workshop together
The final workshop requires both children and parents to attend. The workshop is designed to give parents the opportunity to share some of the new skills that their children have learnt. While the children are busy creating their certificate frames, parents will be facilitated through their own special guided visualisation exercise. This is followed by a short graduation ceremony where the children are presented with their certificates for completing the course and the group shares a closing message.
