'Why would Jack find Newton Park an interesting place to be?'
We took a trip to our local park and looked for all of the things that Jack might find interesting there. We wrote a list of all of the exciting things we could see and also talked about the areas in the park that we enjoy exploring at the weekend 😁
Jack sent us some magic beans! We had a discussion about if we had ever planted beans or seeds before and it turns out that many of us are planting experts! We shared our knowledge, discussing what we had planted before and what out beans would need to grow.
We planted our beans and we cannot wait to see their growth 🌿
'How can we attract more birds to our school/local area?'
We have been learning all about different birds and how to identify them and now we are excited to attract more to our school. We have made our own bird feeders and we are ready to hang them up ready for our feathery visitors.
On World Mental Health Day we took some time to think about what makes us happy. We drew pictures in our mindfulness journal of the people/things that make us happy. We also discussed the importance of mental health and how our emotions change in different situations. We talked about different times when we have felt sad/angry and thought about how we manage these feelings. We also thought about how to look for these emotions in others.
