Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

Wellbeing Week - join our competition!!

Next week the children will be taking part in a school wellbeing week. Please read on for further information - details of an exciting competition are at the end of the article!

The week will aim to teach the children about the importance of looking after their own wellbeing through five elements that promote wellbeing and happiness.

Positive emotion: When someone enjoys tasks and activities, they are more likely to persevere and battle challenges.

Engagement: It is important in our lives to be able to find activities that require our full engagement. Engagement in the activities in our lives is important for us to learn, grow and nurture our personal happiness.

Relationships: Building positive relationships with your parents, siblings, peers and friends are important to spread love and joy. Having strong relationships gives you support in difficult times.

Health: We will learn about how exercise can help to make you feel good by releasing endorphins. This includes physical exercise like running and yoga.

Accomplishments: Having goals and ambition can help us to achieve things that can give us a sense of accomplishment. We can all make realistic goals that can be achieved. Just putting the effort in to achieving these goals can already create a sense of satisfaction. Having accomplishments in life is important to push ourselves to thrive and flourish.

During the week, the children will take part in a variety of activities including:

  • sharing books about feelings and emotions,
  • daily mindfulness sessions,
  • yoga sessions,
  • a MIND led workshops and assembly for Key Stage Two,
  • a visit from Daisy the dog,
  • a super competition to promote striving for achievement,
  • and help from parents talking about benefits of exercise on your wellbeing and mental health.
