On Wednesday we celebrated World Mental Health Day. We had lots of activities during the school day, Bullybusters came in and told us how to stay safe and keep each other safe whilst maintaining good mental health. Dementia friends came to speak to us about how dementia effects lots of people around the world. Miss Jones taught KS1 zumba, Miss Parr did some healthy food making with us and Mr Helme taught us how to use mindfulness and meditation throughout the day. We had visits from NHS Liverpool who alarmed us at the amount of sugar in soft drinks, cereals and yogurts – we will certainly think about our packed lunches more carefully from now on. We had some great sports lessons off Brian our school coach, he taught us how to play fun games that made us feel good but also keep us very fit and healthy. Yellow House (child’s mental health charity) came in and played some very energetic games with us, we all got involved and we learned that everyone has some insecurities but they can be dealt with in a great way. Mrs Crossland came in and showed our KS1 children how to cross the road safely. Later on in the evening we carried on our theme of ‘Wellbeing’ and had our parents in the hall, we had a yoga session led by Mrs Ryan, zumba session led by Miss Jones, hand massage led by Mrs Hurst and singling from our fantastic choir. Chartwells, our school meal providers, came in and did some healthy show cooking for us.
