Children at Hillshott Infant & Nursery School in Letchworth celebrated Feeling Good Week last week.
The special activities held during Feeling Good Week were designed to help children and staff to improve their physical and mental wellbeing through five themes; Creative Me, Active Me, Mindful Me, Healthy Me and Kind Me.
Activities included listening to classical music and painting a whole class scene of how the music sparked imaginations, a whole school step challenge, yoga sessions and children making healthy fruit kebabs and smoothies.
Iona in Reception class said her “favourite part of the week was collecting flowers and grass to make a clay model. It made my head calm and my heart happy.”
Mental health lead, Tracey Mountney, said: “Now more than ever, mental health is at the forefront of people’s minds.
