This free 2-hour online workshop brings together Service children in a similar situation to explore the unique challenges and opportunities that they experience as members of the British Armed Forces community and celebrate what it means to be a ‘Little Trooper’. The session is pre-recorded as a ‘live’ event, delivered by an experienced team of facilitators using Little Troopers’ primary school resources incorporating storytelling, movement, group discussion and role play. The workshop is open to all Service children in your setting of primary age and suitable for groups of any size.
The aim is for your Service children to leave the session feeling proud of their identity and to feel as though their unique circumstances and life experiences have been acknowledged and understood. Your school will also be provided with useful information to assist with the continued and ongoing support of Service children in your setting.
This workshop has been created with all primary-age Service children in mind meaning it can be delivered to a large group of children of different ages at once. This gives Service children who might not usually communicate with one another the opportunity to share their experiences and recognise that they are not alone. Furthermore, the workshop has been organised so that is appears pupils are logging in at the same time as other Service children across Wales. This will help the workshop to feel more like an exciting ‘event’ that brings children together and gives them a sense of belonging.
Each child that participates will receive a Little Troopers storybook, certificate, sticker, a packet of wildflower seeds and SSCE Cymru goodies.
