Filling up a Bucket (KS2)

Use Filling up a Bucket KS2 to take your wellbeing lessons outside sing natural resources to inspire you.

This lesson can be adapted easily to do inside or outside. Give learners a container each with their name on. These will be their ‘buckets’. Explain that everyone carries around an invisible bucket. It carries your good thoughts and feelings about yourself. You feel happy when your bucket is full of good things but you feel very sad and lonely when your bucket is empty. The way that our buckets work is simple – you need other people to fill your bucket and they need you to fill theirs.

You fill a bucket when you show kindness towards others. If you do this, you are a ‘Bucket Filler’.
