My Happy Mind
We are really excited about starting our New Mental Health Support Programme "My Happy Mind" with the whole school from Monday 10th January 2022.
The children have been introduced to it during an Assembly and are keen to get started and learn more about how their brain works and techniques to support their mental health.
Please see below for the letter to parents/carers and try out the free resources to at home with your children by clicking on this link to the website:
My Happy Mind - Meet Your Brain
All the children in school have enjoyed starting the first module of My Happy Mind called “Meet Your Brain”. We are starting to refer to any new achievement as a “neuroplasticity moment” which the children love saying to each other.
They have been introduced to 3 parts of the brain through the H-A-P character so you may start hearing them use these words more at home:
H – Hippocampus - Like a scrapbook storing all your memories and things you learn.
A – Amygdala - Takes control and keeps you safe when there is danger. Fight/flight/freeze.
P – Prefrontal Cortex - Helps you to make choices, concentrate and solve problems.
