Children's Mental Health Week

To coincide with Place2Be's launch of Children's Mental Health Week 4th - 10th February, 2019,  we celebrated Dallington Happiness Week!  Place2Be is a children's mental health charity focused on improving the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.  Throughout this week, staff and children have engaged in discussions and activities about what  makes us happy.  We also remembered to think about what we can do to make others happy.  Feeling loved, bedtime stories, eating Chinese food to mark Chinese New Year,  sleep-overs, being kind to others, helping our friends when they are sad, running,  jumping, playing football - these were all part of an exhaustive list, alongside listening to music and the aptly  titled song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams! Our bodies and minds are connected so simple things that we do to improve our physical wellbeing can also boost our mental wellbeing.
