This week classes in school have been watching videos and doing activities from Buckfastleigh Abbey. In year four we talked about what makes us happy and had some quiet time with some happy music.
In year five we watched some videos about calm places and talked about where we can go to help calm down. Hopefully you did some exciting or calming activities too!
Today everyone is dressed in yellow for Hello Yellow day. This is to remind us that we can all find time each day to find happiness and do things that make us feel calm. The money you donate today will go to help young people and children who are finding this hard. Young minds is a group of lovely people who are helping young people and children find their happy place. They do lots of work to look after these children and teach them skills to make their minds healthy.
This afternoon Mr Basha taught Beech class some yoga games and mindfulness tricks. They were really relaxed and enjoyed learning the different moves. In such a busy world it’s really important that we all take the time to rest our minds and look after our mental wellbeing.
