This years theme is 'Healthy minds + healthy bodies = happy life'.
In worship, we discussed the importance of a happy mind and happy body. We also discussed key coping strategies that could help us during the times we may not feel very happy. We also talked and thought about things that make us happy and how important it is to do more of what we love.
We then discussed the film 'Inside Out' and from this, we discussed an alternative: Outside In. This is because we feel the key message is:
Tell somebody on the OUTSIDE, how you are feeling on the INSIDE.
The children then created a character which described an emotion which would be suitable for 'Outside In'. Alongside their designs, the children were asked to provide coping strategies to match their chosen emotion. They will then be used as an aid to help children to identify their feelings and make good choices by being placed on display in our Nurture Room
