In Year 1, we tried to guess how our friends sorted the 3D shapes. We used lots of mathematical language to name and describe the shapes. It was fun using solid shapes to make towers for Rapunzel! ! pic.twitter.com/VFr7gDxoYc

Wellbeing

Well being

"The school provides particularly well for pupils' social and emotional development and their mental-health needs. This is a key strength of the school." School Ofsted Report, June 2019

At Harpenden Academy we want to make sure that all of us are safe and happy at school and at home. Sometimes things can make us anxious or worried, or we have too many things going on and we feel stressed or upset. This happens to us all, adults and children, and we want everyone in our school community to realise how important it is to make time for ourselves, to talk to others and support each other. In school, we are making time for Mindfulness every day where children and staff can have a few minutes to think and help them feel calm and relaxed. This includes listening to music, meditation and circle time where we can discuss how we are feeling. We are also thinking of other ways that we can promote wellbeing and a positive mental attitude.
