|Well Being Wednesday
As part of well-being Wednesday, our counselling team worked together with the amazing Key Stage 1 homeroom teachers to offer curriculum lessons in emotions and well-being. This week, they explored the text ‘The Colour Monster’ by Anna Llenas. which encourages young ones to open up and discuss how they feel, even when their thoughts are confusing. Children are encouraged to understand all of the feelings they may be having while they are at home. We are so impressed by your work this week Year 1 and 2! - Student Support Team
