We work with targeted groups of children to help improve their behaviour by channelling their emotions through sport.
What is it?
The Bugs Group’s behaviour programmes typically work with a targeted group of children chosen by the school to help ‘poorly behaved’ pupils improve their behaviour through fun sports programmes and mindfulness techniques.
The behaviour scheme looks to teach children:
• How to channel energy in a positive manner
• Rules, responsibilities and respect
• How to understand their own feelings
• How to cope with negative emotions
• To trust, share and work with others
What is involved?
Bugs coaches will provide fun sport sessions to a targeted groups of children through all-inclusive session plans, which ensure children of all abilities are able to participate. Incentive schemes run throughout all sessions, which reward children that demonstrate good attitude, behaviour and a consideration for others.
Some of our incentive schemes include: Captain’s armband, star of the week medals, coach high fives and end of term certificates.
We teach children breathing and relaxation techniques to help children focus their mind, keep them calm and help them deal with different emotions.
The Behaviour Programme also includes:
Staff Training on mindfulness
Certificates for children and staff
Detailed report on every child's progression
We've had the YogaBugs programme in our school for the past 3 years now. The results for the children speak for themselves when you see the great improvements made with their physical literacy, hand writing skills and concentration. They love it!
We had the YogaBugs programme in our Nurture group which was a great success. The programme helped improve the children's social and emotional needs
