Wellbeing Wednesday

Enjoy some Calm Me time with Mrs Cocker


Today you are going to have some time to reflect on the past school year and consider the things you are looking forward in the future. Think carefully about both the summer holidays and when you return back to school in September, there are lots of things to look forward to!


When you think about the future, there might be something that gives you 'the butterflies' and makes you feel a little nervous, this is totally normal. Have a chat with your grown up about what you could do to try and make 'your butterflies' better.


Use the sheets below to help you record your ideas or draw some pictures to represent them. 


Don't forgot to take time everyday to relax and enjoy some Calm Me time and we look forward to being able to share it together in September.

Enjoy a story with Chris White - Our Patron of Reading
