The school marked Children’s Mental Health Week to raise awareness of the need to take care of our minds as well as our bodies. Parents, teachers and students of all ages got involved.
The infants were playing games to help talk about different feelings, the juniors were learning about the need for good sleep, diet and exercise for healthy minds. The lower seniors made artistic explorations of the nature of emotions, and the upper seniors got to incorporate some building-work into their classes! All year groups got musical to consider the affect of music on mood and some cookery students even made emoji cupcakes!
Everyone had a go at learning to stop and breath, to help focus in their classes, and also enjoyed some fun activities as “brain breaks” between lessons.
It was also great to see so many parents at the Wellbeing Workshop that week which proved very helpful in understanding anxiety and how it impacts on adults and children alike.
