Happy Half Term!

We wish all our pupils and their families a good week off and look forward to seeing everyone back in school on Monday 19th February. Here’s hoping for some kind weather to bring more spring flowers out in our lovely grounds!

Being mindful in Year 5

As well as running mindfulness sessions with Years 3 and 4, as reported last week, this afternoon Sister Ann Greig worked with our Year 5 pupils in the first of what could become regular sessions. The children began by exploring what mindfulness means and the importance of being aware of your feelings.   They then cut out some leaf shapes and labelled them, naming some of the good things in their lives, to encourage positive thinking.  The leaves will be used to create a gratitude tree.  Watch this space!

You asked: we listened….mindfulness classes

In our recent survey, some Prep parents suggested that mindfulness sessions would be a welcome addition for pupils. We are pleased to say that as part of her PSHE lesson next week, Sister Greig will start teaching the pupils in Years 3 and 4 about mindfulness.

She plans to do a guided relaxation with them and show them some breathing techniques which will help promote happiness and reduce stress. She will be doing similar lessons with the other year groups and plans also to start a drop- in lunchtime mindfulness club.

Should old acquaintance be forgot in Year 1?

This week Year 1 are learning about new year: what it means and the traditions surrounding it. Mrs Bird is teaching them “Auld Lang Syne” – and what better place to practise than in front of a glowing log fire in our main hall? Hooray for HOHS and hooray for 2018!
