Wellness Month

Wellness Month

We had a Wellness Month last December where pupils from all classes reflected on positive things in their lives as part of their homework.  Each class reduced written homework and in its place children reflected on their day in their gratitude journals. Other classes were encouraged to chat with the family at home as part of the month. This led to open family discussions around questions like;

  • What makes us happy?
  • What did we do well today?
  • How were we kind today?

As well as this, each class had an ‘Advent Act of Kindness’ calendar, from which tasks were assigned each day; we encouraged family discussions around this too. Our Wellness month proved to be great success and fantastic fun too!!
