Where can I go for help
Star breathing is a mindfulness technique to help children focus and calm down.
Children can trace the outline of the star with their eyes or using their finger. As they go along, they breathe in on one line, keep still as they reach the point, and then breathe out as they go down the next line. This continues until they reach back to where they started.

Mental Health is a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community. (World Health Organisation)
Old Church prides itself in its happy atmosphere, in which children are not only encouraged to work hard and play hard, but also to show care and respect to one another, the environment and community they live in. We aim to promote positive mental health for all by using universal whole school approaches and specialised, targeted approaches aimed at vulnerable pupils.

All you need to do is wear odd socks! It's a great way to celebrate what makes us all unique in Anti-Bullying Week! Odd Socks Day is being held on Monday 14th November this year. Odd Socks Day is delivered in partnership with CBeebies and CBBC star Andy Day and his band, Andy and the Odd Socks.
Year 5 have been expressing themselves during Anti-bullying week.
They have created a communal piece of art, with the theme reaching out.
On Monday 10th October we took part in Hello Yellow day to support World Mental Health Day.
We dressed in yellow and enjoyed activities to support our mental health during the day.
