Wellbeing

Learning Objective: I am learning about emotional wellbeing. 

 

As you know, we will be focusing on our wellbeing each Friday morning. We have already looked at some techniques to support wellbeing, such as mindfulness and relaxation. Today, we are going to take a closer look at what we mean by 'wellbeing' and how we can support our mental health by expressing our self! Find out more here...

You are going to create a missing poster for the penguin! 

For this lesson, you will need your character description from yesterday! Once you are ready, watch this video to find out how you are going to do this...
