Griffin Class - Teamwork is important to help each other succeed!
Teamwork makes the dream work
Our PSHE lesson today focused on teamwork. The task was to pass the hoop around the circle whilst still holding hands. The chain of hands had to remain secure for successful completion of the task. The children had to discuss the task, their group tactic and evaluate their attempts. It was entertaining to watch.
Charging our battery
A constant theme in our PSHE this term is encouraging the children to think of their mental health and wellbeing in terms of a battery. We have a designated display board in class to encourage this. The board is themed on the children's film 'Inside Out'. We're trying to promote the idea of looking after our mental health and the steps we can take to give ourselves a boost or a 'charge', just as they would charge a device. We have a self care poster for the children to look at and some self love activities for them to use. Anybody for a yoga pose? How about a positive mantra?
Healthy Heads: Healthy Heads is a cross-curricular PSHE initiative that focusses on "whole-child development." Throughout this half term the children in the Griffin class will access learning through storytelling and topical games to promote; Self-esteem/Kindness/Teamwork/Resilience/Positivity.
