Journal Project

Hedleys College have developed a selection of journal pages students can use to help with wellbeing and mindfulness.


Introduce the approach or activity

This activity involves the student keeping a journal of the activities they do during the day/week. It also allows space for them to reflect on their emotions and plan for the next day/week.

Describe the learner cohort you have used this with?

The activity has been used with Work Based Learners working between Entry level 2 – 3.

Top tips and key considerations

This is an activity that can be as detailed or as simple as the student is capable of. It can be expanded to include the student creating their own journal format either using a computer or paper and pens.

The activity does not have to be completed at a set time and can easily be worked into a personalised timetable.

The tutor should be mindful of whether the student has access to a printer, if not the journal sheets can be sent in the mail.

What resources are required?

Printed journal sheets or computer to edit journal

Pens and paper

Camera (if student wants to include photos of their day)

How will you capture evidence of learning?

Work produced by students, parent/carer witness statement
