This year, we are so excited to be able to be a part of an NHS programme called MyHappyMind, an emotional and mental wellbeing package, whole school teaching programme. This is based on science/positive psychology which is proven in research to support wellbeing in children in primary schools.
Since starting the programme, our children have shared lots of positive comments about the modules and told staff all about the modules that they have enjoyed so far, including learning about brain function and showing appreciation for others.
The modules have also linked to all the work we have carried out this year already to help to promote our children's wellbeing. It also helps to consolidate this through interesting whole class teaching sequences, including quizzes and songs.
The other great feature of this programme has been been the opportunity to engage parents/carers who can use the app to learn the same principles at home.
Each class has 2 Happiness Heroes who wear a badge to represent their status as good role models for happiness to others.
