Well being Wednesday

Well being Wednesday

Every week the children in Year One participate in a well-being session and this week the children were thinking about the qualities of their friends. Each child in the class picked out a lolly-stick with a name on and then went away and thought about this friend. The children then wrote a short message to their friend and drew a picture for them. It is lovely to read the messages the children wrote to each other and to see the smiles they bring!
