Good suggestions were: use what you already know; try a different way; work with your partner; stay calm and persevere.
Mental Health Week in Wheal Busy
As part of Children's Mental Health Week Wheal Busy have been thinking about ways to calm themselves when they experience challenging feelings. We think they have come up with a really good list. What do you think? Which strategy would you try? If you would like any ideas to support your child with their well being take a look at the Children's Mental Health website and remember we are always here to talk about any worries you might have about this.
After some whole class circle time about wellbeing, Mawgan asked to make a poster about what he had learned. He was really pleased when Olly offered to help as well.
As part of PE and their topic about healthy eating and living, Wheal Busy have been doing some circuit training. If you look carefully you can even spot Mrs Wheeler having a go!
