Staff Wellbeing Ideas For Primary Teachers

Let’s not forget you. We’re not leaving you out! ♥

We have lots of team building and wellbeing activities that are perfect for teacher meetings. Our activities are loved throughout the NHS and Amazon. Never underestimate how important and beneficial it is for teams to have fun together away from normal work activities, it’s like a super-charged dose of wellbeing for the entire team.

A Fun Meeting Energiser – Drawing Ahead!

This is a brilliant and bitesize activity you can do as a team to create team bonding at a meeting or away day. It can take less than 5 minutes:

You will need:

📍 1 piece of card per person

📍 1 pen per person


📍 Step 1 – Instruct everyone to put their piece of card on their head 

📍 Step 2 – Instruct everyone to draw a picture on the piece of card. You can pick what picture they draw. Maybe you’re talking about pupil wellbeing and you can get everyone to draw a smiling child. Or if it’s Easter, get them to draw an Easter egg

📍 Step 3 – Instruct everyone to write their name underneath their drawing

📍 Step 4 – Give them 1 minute and get them to draw!

📍 Step 5 – After 1 minute, ask everyone to remove the card and show to everyone around them 

Team bonding benefits to this game:

⚡️ Everyone’s drawing will be funny, so no one will feel awkward about their lack of artistic ability

⚡️ Everyone will have a great laugh about each other’s drawings

⚡️ It challenges brains in a unique way


A Fun Meeting Energiser – Switch Hands!

This will challenge your mind. How fast can you switch??

Our seated yoga sessions can be done by teachers too!

Love Team Laughtercise


Whether you’re looking for a unique hen do idea for your hen crew or a corporate team building workshop for your team, a Laughtercise session is all about creating as many smiles and laughter in your group as humanely possible!

We’ve scoured the world for the best exercises, activities and games that bring out smiles and giggles.

We would love to tell you that we’ve invented loads of activities but we haven’t invented ANYTHING. We’ve taken the best that exists, combined it together and made it better…our very own original recipe.

Simple ideas, simple games, all facilitated expertly.

We deliver sessions in-person or online.

Is your room small? Is it large? Inside? Outside? We’ll be there! We will work around you.

For team building sessions, we can come to your office or away day location. For hen parties, we can come to your accommodation or a private room that you’ve booked.

📍 Our Corporate Team Building Workshops vary from 10-minute energising conferences sessions to full away day sessions of 4hs

📍 Our Corporate Wellbeing Workshops can vary in length from 1hr to 3hrs

📍 Our Online Team Building Workshops can vary in length from 30mins to 1.5hrs

📍 For online sessions, the attendee limit is 1000.

📍 For in-person sessions, the only limit is how much room you have (the more the merrier!)

Our prices vary depending on the number of attendees, how long the session is for and where the session is held.

We can guarantee you this though…in terms of bang for buck, you’ll get a sonic boom 💥

Let’s get some time to discuss, get in touch 😀

Our Corporate Team Building Workshops have been described as ‘the most fun I’ve ever had at work’ by Amazon employees and in a recent NHS study, 77% of NHS session attendees reported feeling less stressed after their Laughtercise session.

Hens love Laughtercise too 👇

“It was so good, everyone loved it. We all highly recommend, the Laughtercise Team are an absolute dream. It was INCREDIBLE”

But the only way to truly find out, is to dive in and get smiling! 😁

We will rock your world ⚡

Yes, loads!
