We have had a fantastic start to Healthy School Week! Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have enjoyed a variety of activities such as; learning about the heart, brain and lungs in their body and how to keep them healthy, exercising, learning how to keep clean and healthy such as knowing what to do if we get head lice and knowing how to stay safe when using the internet.
This week is children's mental health week and so we have been learning that mental health is just as important as physical health in order to stay happy and healthy. We learnt some important lessons about talking to someone we trust if our emotions get big and heavy. We also learnt that's it's really important to say positive things about ourselves. We practised saying great things about ourselves such as 'I am calm', 'I am brilliant', 'I am energetic' and 'I am successful'. We learnt some techniques to calm us down if we feel very cross or frustrated. When our body and mind are calm the problem doesn't seem so bad and we can respond in a calm way so that everyone feels happier.
We are looking forward to learning more about being healthy tomorrow!
