Highbury Primary School

Pastoral and Wellbeing

 The launch of 'My Happy Minds',  is where children and staff all across the school have been learning all about the parts of their brain (Hippocampus, which is a scrapbook for our memories; Amydala, the part of the brain that senses danger and Prefrontal Cortex, the part of the brain that helps to make decisions). We have been learning all about fight, flight and freeze, when our amydala shuts other parts of our brain down; we've focused on 'Happy Breathing' to help awaken the rest of our brain to be able to make decisions again. 

Children have loved filling in their journals and there is  an app available for parents to download, so they can share the learning journey with their children.
