Today Mrs Edwards had the privilege of taking our Yr5 and Yr6 School Council Reps to Market Field School for a multi School Council meeting on mental health and well-being for the young.
We were lucky enough to be joined by several members of our Parent Council, as well as Mrs Hope from our Pastoral Team.
We watched a clip from the film ‘Inside Out’ before listening to a very informative speaker who explained to us how and why we feel different emotions, and how we can deal with them.
We then worked together to discuss what makes us feel happy, sad or worried. We shared our thoughts with the children from the other school councils and learnt that when we feel anxious we should: talk about it, do some exercise, relax and sleep on it.
We are going to share what we have learnt today with the other Reps at our next meeting (Friday, 5th October) before carrying out a Buddy Group session to allow all pupils an insight into this most valuable information.
