  1. Parents Information
  2. Wellbeing/Mental Health

On Wellbeing Wednesday we learnt about our feelings and ways to cope with our feelings.

Our main focus was on the feeling of anger.  We learnt about what anger is, how it affects our bodies, how we can manage feelings of angers and how we can recognise anger in others.

We used feeling wheels to identify our feelings and feeling thermometers to decide how to manage our feelings.

Wellbeing Wednesday was lots of fun!

Reception spent time with their year 6 buddies.  Their buddies taught them how to use the track.

We read 'The Friendship Bench' and then made a 'Friendship Stop' for a class.  We talked about looking after our friends.
We also talked about who helps us at home and school and made a 'helping hand.'
Finally, we read 'Stompysaurus' and talked about the feeling of 'anger' and what we can do when we feel like that.

In Year 2 the children made 'quiet critters' to help them take notice. 

They also made worry monsters to help them connect when they have a worry.

In Year 3 they spent time in our forest school area!

Year 5 focused on respect and being creative!

We focus on the 5 ways to wellbeing
