MINDFULNESS
Mindfulness exercises help children get better in touch with their thoughts and feelings. With increased awareness of how they are feeling in the moment, comes less emotional reactivity and a greater ability to listen and communicate more thoughtfully and effectively.
Mindfulness is timetabled on a daily base.

 

We believe that wellbeing is a clear indicator of academic achievement and success in later life, which is why we have a whole school approach to prioritize our children's and staff's wellbeing. Our school-based approach to promoting wellbeing is structured around the six ways of wellbeing, focusing on all and one in detail, each term.
 
Term 1 - Keep Learning, try something new.
Growth mindset. How our brain works and how we can stretch it and the neuroscience of fright, flight and freeze response's. 
 
Term 2 - Giving
The act of giving/kindness and its benefits to others and ourselves.
13th November International Day of Kindness.
Supporting our community.
 
Term 3 - Care for the Planet.
What small changes can we make to live a greener life, making a difference.
 
Term 4 - Take Notice
Encouraging us to be curious of our surroundings. Reflection and how it helps build resilience.
Gardening projects.
 
Term 5 - Connect
Positive relationships and self-image.
Reading and listening challenge. Nurturing friendships
 
Term 6 - Be active.
How physical activity helps us to think and feel positivity. Getting outside and moving.
