Full CalendarEvents Calendar

This event will take place on 07/10/2019 until 11/10/2019.

Over the course of the week we will be talking to the children about how we can work at having a healthy mind, just as we can work at having a healthy body.

We will explore ways to look after our own wellbeing, including maintaining good physical health through exercise and nutrition, and finding time to relax and have fun. As part of this learning, we will be discussing the reasons why limiting screen time, spending quality time with family and friends instead, is good for our wellbeing; we have attached a parent information leaflet on this topic for those you may be interested to read it. If you have any questions regarding what will be covered during the week and how, please speak to your child’s
