Workshops for Children in Schools

I devise and facilitate tailor-made workshops for children in schools. These are on a wide variety of subjects including you can be whoever you want to be, social media and friendships, communication, secondary school transition, self-esteem and confidence.

All the workshops can be 60 or 90 minutes long and can cater for up to 30 children at a time.

Being Me (And Loving It) Workshop

This workshop is based around my second book “Being Me (and Loving It). The

workshop can focus on one or two of the issues addressed in the book as chosen by the school. The workshops are tailor-made to suit the class needs and they encompass story-telling, wholesome class discussions and small group creative activities which are fun and interactive.

A Secondary School Transition Workshop

This school workshop is for year six children who are making the move from primary to secondary school. It provides children with as much information about secondary school as possible and it is a great platform for children to address and allay any fears they have about making the transition and raise their confidence.

Every aspect of change that secondary school brings is discussed from making new friends to getting lost and homework to new teachers. We also discuss social media so children know what they should and should not be using it for. The workshop is interactive, fun and supportive and the children leave the workshop realising that moving to a new school is not as daunting as it seems.

A Friendship and Communication Workshop

This is a creative, interactive and supportive workshop that looks at how to forge good friendships and make them last. It addresses the dynamics of friendships and looks at non-verbal and verbal communication including how to communicate using social media and addresses how to get along with ‘tricky people’ and understand others differences.

A Self-esteem and Confidence Workshop

This workshop addresses how children feel about themselves in general and looks at ways of improving their self-image and their self-belief. It also looks at where children do not currently feel confident and we work on this so they leave the workshop feeling six feet tall and able to do anything they put their mind to.

Workshop Feedback from Teachers

“Thank you for participating in our Year 7 Focus day last month. The concepts and ideas you presented on managing friendships was well received. You covered the key topics that we identified with knowledge and relevant activities. The girls clearly gained reassurance about their changing friendships and improved in knowledge of strategies to manage them with more grace and wisdom.”

“We wanted to our children to participate in Naomi’s Effective Communication workshop, not for fixing any problem as such, but as a learning experience to enhance their way of thinking about communication issues. Needless to say they came away from it invigorated and empowered with learning about alternative approaches, alternative solutions as well as a better understanding of verbal and non-verbal communication skills. Naomi’s expertise and empathy offers children a refreshing perspective that complements the role of parents, family and school.”

“I thank you for your visit to our girls school on Thursday. Your journey to writing and publishing a book was both very inspiring and informative. I wish you further success in the future.”
Kind regards. Mrs N Begum

“I hope that you are well and thank you so much for delivering the workshops. I have attached here a copy of the boys’ responses to the feedback survey that I sent out. All are positive. I am really pleased with the early outcomes. Speak soon – I would like to get a date in the diary for next academic year.”
