Year 6 we’re lucky enough to visit Heywood Sports Village alongside other schools to take part in a wellbeing transition afternoon. We took part in different workshops on, ‘Food and Mood’, ‘Yoga and Mindfulness’ and ‘Emotions’. We discussed how it was ok to feel nervous yet excited for high school and that we must reach out and speak to adults if we need support with these emotions.

Therefore, we used chalk outdoors and drew big lines graphs in groups. We had to decide on the intervals and the x and y axis! They turned out amazing!
