The Cool Chameleon Project consists of nurture group activities that are categorised into a progressive sequence of Bronze, Silver and Gold and are designed to be accessible to all pupils, regardless of age. You will have access to a total of 42 fully planned and resourced challenge activities which are specially created to equip adults to meet the needs of groups or individuals, and break down barriers to learning.
Within every class there will be some pupils who display some (or all!) of the following traits:- lack of communication skills, an inability to share resources, poor resilience, struggles to take turns, egocentric, struggle to adapt when routines change, mistrusting of other adults, disinterested in the world around them, self-critical and poor self-control.
It can be difficult to find nurture group activities and resources that can address all of these areas in a consistent and focused way, whilst allowing for creativity and fun. This is why The Cool Chameleon Project is here to help. By consolidating these traits into four key areas: Participation, Communication, Resilience and Compassion, nurture group leaders and teachers can ensure that they are taking their children on a journey of discovery and transformation, which will lead to:-
- Active pupil participation
- Willingness to work collaboratively
- Increased confidence
- Greater resilience
- Acceptance of themselves and others
- Greater empathy
- Better able to communicate their needs and opinions
- Increased engagement in mainstream classrooms
Our unique “chameleon effect” empowers children to transform into positive, motivated and resilient learners who can take these new found skills into any setting. Importantly, teachers are also provided with ‘pick up and teach’ plans and resources to facilitate their pupils’ capacity for change.
