Macmillan Assembly.

On Monday 17th October, Year 6 took part in a workshop with the Mental Health in Schools Team. This involved learning all about changes that we could and couldn't control and provided different strategies for coping with these changes. The children participated fully in discussions during this session and were very sensible when sharing their ideas. One key change that children wanted to learn more about was moving to secondary school and the team were able to provide them with some coping methods for dealing with this transition when they move schools next September.
