Overall the children loved 'Health' month and learnt a lot of valuable information as well as having so much fun ☺️.
Last week was mental health week. The children made their own emotions face masks. They spoke about how they knew when someone was happy/sad/angry/tired and role modelled this with their own facial expressions.
