Our workshops use the science of happiness to help KS1 and KS2 primary school students cope with exam stress, achieve better SATs results and improve school performance.
Recent research by Dr.Dave Putwain, from Edge Hill University, has found that “pupils who worry about their exam performance are more likely to do badly than those who are less anxious.” The pressure surrounding SATs can be colossal for teachers and children.
By ensuring your teachers, support teams, children and parents have techniques to help them manage pressures caused by SAT’s and exams you are increasing children’s chances of doing well.
For children, the pressure is confusing and upsetting and causes anxiety and exam nerves for students whose ability to manage these emotions are not yet properly developed.
Our Year 6 children who were anxious about their end of year tests and performing their leavers' assembly were taught by Laughology, to 'FLIP' negative situations and make them into more positive, less threatening experiences. Their increased confidence and can-do attitude was clear to see, their SATs results pleasing and their end of year show was absolutely fantastic!
