The Kestrels loved having Harold visit again this week with our ‘in house’ Life Ed lesson. They were experts on our feelings and recognising how they make our bodies feel. They also learnt about how eating healthy food to give us lots of energy and where it travels through the digestive system. Finally they discussed how important it is to have a good sleep to keep us happy and in a good mood.

Meanwhile Year Two have begun to plan and rewrite their own version of the story with a different character like ‘The Very Hungry Worm’ and changing the fruits. We have also had a fabulous time at our mindfulness session learning different breathing techniques.

In Kestrels, throughout our literacy sessions this week, we have had a strong focus on our mental wellbeing. We have thought carefully about different emotions, their causes and effects and some strategies to help us deal them. We have enjoyed learning about ‘The Colour Monster’ and all his emotions. We have been drawing our own ‘feeling’ monsters and writing about when we feel different emotions.
