A message from the Head of School…
World Mental Health Day took place on Wednesday 10th October. In school the children took part in simple activities to improve and maintain their own wellbeing.
We explained to the children that mental health is just like physical health. Everyone has it and we need to take care of it. The children learnt that mental health describes
how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day to day life. The teachers shared some great tips for looking after their wellbeing. Key Stage 1 children enjoyed quiet
time in the outside environment and learnt breathing techniques to help them relax. Please talk to your child/children about the techniques they learnt. It’s really important to make time to look after yourself. Try and put your feet up tonight when your children are in bed and relax.

Read all about it….Mrs McQuade has been given the exciting opportunity to represent the Ebor Academy Trust on a visit to Shanghai. She will be learning about how maths is taught there and will be able to bring back lots of great ideas to try in school. Miss Ramsay and Mrs Gibson will be teaching the class while she is away. We can’t wait for Mrs McQuade to share her new ideas with the school and help improve how we deliver mathematics across school.
