As part of our continued focus on supporting mental health and wellbeing at Westfield, we started this month with our annual ‘Feel Good week.’
We started the week by welcoming ‘Healthy me fit4kids’ who carried out workshops for all of our children. During the sessions, the children learnt about the different food groups, as well as raising their awareness to the food labels on packaging and the importance of eating a healthy balanced diet. They also took part in a range of physical exercises as part of a fitness circuit carousel. These workshops further raised children’s understanding of simple ways that they can look after their body and mind each day – as well as having fun! Please help us to continue to promote the importance of this at home.
Here is the positive feedback we received from Lucy who delivered the workshops:
‘Had a great time leading the Fit4kids workshop with each class. The children were lovely, curious, attentive and full of life! Stay Healthy everyone!’
On the Tuesday, each class enjoyed a relaxing session of yoga with Soraya. This incorporated a combination of yoga exercises and mindfulness. The staff and children spoke very positively about these sessions saying how relaxed and calm they felt as they returned to class to continue their learning.
Thank you to Soraya for the following feedback…
‘Thank you for having me teach yoga to the children at Westfield. What a beautiful school- with thoughtful, communicative children. One of my favourite schools.’
At Westfield, we continue to reflect on how we incorporate the ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ into our daily lives and how these little things help us feel more positive and happy.
