Living and learning

Thursday 07 December 2023

This week, our living and learning statement has been, ‘I can describe and use self-care techniques.’

We talked about how sometimes people may experience poor mental health. This is how we feel on the inside and a build up of different smaller emotions that can lead to changes in mood and behaviour. It is important that we know how to spot this in ourselves and also recognise it in each other. The children might see someone spending more time alone, maybe not eating their lunch, struggling with their learning or a change in mood – maybe being more angry.

In order to deal with these emotions and feelings, we learnt some breathing exercises – bunny breathing and snake breaths.

Help at home: Ask your child if they can show you the new breathing techniques? Have they tried any of these?
