This year’s theme, ‘It’s Good To Be Me’, saw the students enjoy talks about emotions and how to recognise them as well as self-esteem and relaxation.

Clare Robertson, who organised the event, said: “Each day we focused on a different emotion and children and adults were given the chance to express their feelings.

“The whole school have been taking part - reception children through to year six, the teaching and the support staff.

“Highlights have included playing ‘Spot the emoji’ and writing on a graffiti feelings wall (Monday – excited, Tuesday – cross, Wednesday – proud, Thursday – sad, Friday – relaxed).

“The week finished with a celebration assembly when a child from each class received a head teacher’s award for positive and thoughtful contributions.

“All of the children from year three to six also had an opportunity to learn some yoga postures in a session led by a local community member.”
