Today, the children in all three classes had their planned SCARF Online sessions with expert Su from CORAM Life Education. These supplementary PSHE sessions were tailored for each class in response to the pandemic.
The session for Acorn Class was around recognising and managing emotions, using the friendly character of Harold the Giraffe to interact with the children. This proved a great opportunity to reinforce all the lovely work our youngest pupils have already been doing with Miss Wiffen, using the stimulus of children's book: 'The Colour Monster'.
Horse Chestnut Class learned about all the different ways to keep their bodies healthy: eating a balanced diet, getting enough sleep and exercise etc.
Sycamore Class learned about all the ways to promote and maintain a healthy mind. At their end of the session, the older children were tasked to come up with a class definition for mental wellbeing and this was their F A N T A S T I C response:
Mental wellbeing means having positive feelings and good thoughts and practising mindfulness to enable us to have successful relationships with others and to the cope with the challenges of everyday life (good resilience.)
This definition will now be displayed around school to remind us all how to keep ourselves mentally healthy. Well done, everyone!
