On Tuesday the school looked like a sea of sunshine with many children and staff coming to school wearing yellow in recognition of Mental Health day. We joined with schools all over the country, raising awareness of the charity Young Minds, the importance of looking after our wellbeing, and talking about how we are feeling.
As well as many activities in class thinking about our wellbeing we were treated to a visit from local author Jo Jones who writes children’s self help books on. She brought along some friends who were helping each other when one was experiencing ‘the wobbles’. She also taught use some Makaton signs for a well known song about not worrying, because everything will be alright. We were thrilled as we already knew it! It was our Assembly piece of music this week – 3 Little Birds by Bob Marley.
