Resources for Teachers & other Key Workers

KS3 Activity Mats

These units of work are designed for secondary students to support their learning while in school or at home. The activities provide opportunities to explore medical themes and reassure young people (and their families around them). They are designed to encourage self-care and support wellbeing, but importantly to be fun and engaging.

See also our Primary Activity Mats, which some secondary students may enjoy, and our KS3 Mental Health Resources and KS3 Additional Resources pages – in particular the Check-In Activities, Neuroscience Module, and Mindfulness Activities.
