(Every child has the right to express their views and feelings). We developed a 'Wellbeing Toolkit' to include the different 'tools' we might use to help us feel more relaxed, happy and content when we are faced with challenges and setbacks. We also focused on ways in which we can 'grow' emotionally (and set ourselves our own personal targets) and how we can help others to 'grow' emotionally. We ended our Class Assembly with the song 'Stronger' to highlight the importance of being resilient, in order for us all to continue to 'grow' emotionally!
