Evidence has shown that happy people (those who experience more positive emotions) perform better in school, enjoy healthier relationships, are generally more successful and even live longer! It is an ever-growing concern, therefore, that children's levels of happiness and wellbeing are decreasing, while their levels of stress, anxiety and depression are increasing. As a result, many schools and teachers are looking for accessible ways to address these mental health problems in young people. In this practical and thoughtful book, experienced teacher and advisor on children's wellbeing, Adrian Bethune, takes the latest evidence and research from the science of happiness and positive psychology and brings them to life. Wellbeing in the Primary Classroom is packed full of tried-and-tested activities and techniques and has a foreword by Sir Anthony Seldon, former Master of Wellington College, well known for introducing and advocating happiness and wellbeing in education. It is an essential guide to supporting emotional and mental wellbeing in the primary classroom.

Just imagine millions of students, young and old, all over the world, sitting still and listening. Are they happy? I think not. It has been observed by educators and confirmed by non-verbal/mathematical evaluations that there is a measurable discrepancy between the potential and the actual performance of many students. Conclusion reached is that the way we educate our students in educational establishments, does not produce successful or happy people. The purpose of this book is to identify and describe the raw material we have, the students and their environment, the tools we have, books, computers and the product we hope to produce creative and productive students. To achieve this we need to design activities that will allow the students to be involved with each other and independent of each other. We must also take into account special gifts, varied abilities, and handicaps. Activities which do not address the above conditions such as text books exercises, rote learning, and various busy work tasks are killers of all the attributes we love in our students - spontaneity, creativity, enthusiasm, curiosity, and humour. During my last few years teaching K-12 I came up with activities that were mostly student generated. They presented their work to the class and we graded it together. I have spent much time on classroom management for without organization, routine and order chaos reigns. Equal understanding by both, students and teachers, of the benefits of the well-run classroom will add much to the learning environment. I also have taken some time in coming up with grading strategies. As we spend much time on testing and grading we need first of all to free the teachers from this tedium, and then examine whether the benefits to the students warrant so much time spent on the testing process. Perhaps my most rewarding task was the organization and design of a grading rubric. We had so much fun. Most importantly the teacher with a hundred and fifty student reports ha
