Chateez Cards encourage communication, allowing children and young people to express their feelings in a fun and creative way. There are endless ways in which they can be used both in PE and sport but also much more broadly across the curriculum, and this flexibility is why they deliver such effective results.
- Allow young people to open up
- Break down barriers
- Create a comfortable setting
- Defuse situations
- Engage young people.
Top tips for getting started with Chateez Cards:
- Use the resource at the start of the new academic year to build connection among and with your class through PE and sport
- Use them at the start of a new PE unit to gauge pupil feeling
- Use with targeted groups who may shy away from verbal communication
One hard copy of 25 Chateez cards depicting different emoji emotion designs (Happy, Confused, Smiley, Sad, Sick, Laughing, Cuddly, Scared, Angry, Relieved, Mad, Excited, Shocked, Cool, Upset, Embarrassed, Sleepy, Silenced, Hungry, Nervous, Hurt, Cheeky, Worried, Frustrated, and Bored).
Two blank speech-bubble cards and a dry-wipe pen so any additional feelings can easily be noted down and expressed.
Inclusive Focus Groups
Chateez cards can be used to gain young people’s insight through inclusive focus groups. We have created a guidance document and consent forms (group / participant) to assist school staff in running an Inclusive Focus Group for young people, including those with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND), to ensure that practitioners can ascertain the views of all students within their schools, in a meaningful manner.
How do I access?
Chateez cards will be posted to schools together with the other hard copy resources included at your level of membership on receipt of a paid membership invoice. Look out for a YST-branded package through the post.
