This week was Children's Mental Health Week and what a fantastic week it has been. We focussed on the 5 ways to wellbeing this week. On Monday we made thank you cards for someone special and we talked about how we can 'give' to others. thank you so much for the very generous donations, which were collected today by the foodbank and were greatly received. These will really help local families in need. 

On Tuesday, we brought in board games and activities to share. We were joined by Year 3 who brought their games into our classroom. It was so wonderful to witness all the interactions between both classes. We also made compliment cards for someone else in the class, which was really wonderful. The effort they made to draw things their chosen person would like was really lovely.

On Wednesday, we learned some Makaton with Mrs Direnzo. I have taught them a few signs since starting in Year 1 but Mrs Direnzo came in to teach us the Makaton signs for different feelings. All the children were engaged and tried hard to keep using the signs. Since Wednesday was about 'learning' new things we looked at learning how to count to 10 in different languages. The children were all very keen to tell us how to count in their home languages and Mrs Neville taught us how to count to 10 in Russian and Chinese!

On Thursday, the focus was to 'take notice'. We followed a yoga session with Miss Cicero and had mindfulness sessions in class. 

On Friday, we concentrated on 'being active'. We enjoyed a fantastic Just Dance session in the hall with Reception and enjoyed Danny Go in class. 

A truly fantastic week that was hopefully enjoyed by all and to top it off, no homework to worry about!

Have a wonderful weekend, 

Mrs Carpineta
