I’d like to say thank you again for the lovely gifts and cards I received at the end of last term, I felt very lucky and I am so grateful, thank you.
It has been lovely to have the class back together again. As you may know, this week we started our new year with a focus on Health and Well-being and have been lucky enough to have some visitors! On Tuesday, we had a Live n’ Learn workshop where we learnt about all round physical and mental health……ask your children about a growth mindset and see what they can tell you! On Thursday, we took part in a yoga workshop which was based on ‘The Jungle Book’ and animal poses/stretches, and on Friday, we had ‘Jammin Fitness’ in for a dance workshop. I was able to get some photos of the yoga, however I was busy joining in with our dance! I can share that the children thoroughly enjoyed it and commented on being sweaty and tired, so it definitely supported our physical movement focus!
Other main aspects of learning were the importance of drinking enough water throughout the day and learning what happens to our brain if we haven’t had enough sleep. We learnt that it can make us feel grumpy, unorganised and forgetful……maybe this can help when it comes to bedtime at home?! Mrs Laird also held daily assemblies so we could have a closer look at our emotions through using the ‘Inside Out’ characters Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear.
Fantastic start to the term!
