WOW – Wellbeing on Wednesdays

Each Wednesday, we spend the afternoon ‘being’ school rather than ‘doing’ school. The children are guided through activities which are relaxed and creative, allowing them the space to discuss their feelings and teaching staff the time to hear them.

The Colour Monster is a great favourite cross the school allowing us to ‘name’ our feelings, giving us a vocabulary to express them and strategies to work them out.
