Reflecting on lockdown activity

Some children may find the transition back to school difficult after lockdown. It may be useful in the first few weeks of school to reflect on the lockdown period. This resource helps children think about what they have experienced and cope with the changes that have occurred.

Reflecting On Lockdown

This resource is also available in Welsh.

The worksheet asks children to think about things like:

  • New hobbies or skills they learnt during lockdown
  • Things they learnt about themselves in lockdown
  • Things they liked and disliked about lockdown

N.B. Some children may have experienced trauma or bereavement due to Covid-19, and therefore this activity may not be suitable unless part of a larger plan of support.

This resource is designed for:

  • children aged 7 to 11
