On the 25th September we had our first Spotlight Day based around mental health. During the day children learnt about how it is important to keep our minds healthy as well as our bodies. They thought about what mindfulness means and how this can help them to keep mentally fit. The children all took part in different mindfulness activities and used techniques to help them stay calm and relaxed so they could focus on the present moment.
