Health and Wellbeing

At South Farnborough Junior School, children’s wellbeing is considered a great importance and we would like to help you support your child with this during any period of isolation.

 

On this page there are links to support your child’s wellbeing and mental and physical health. Keeping active, getting outside (this can just be in the garden), being creative (e,g. baking, art), mindfulness time (e.g. mindful colouring, yoga, meditation), can all help support your child and yourselves.

Mindfulness

Try some activities below to help you explore your creativity, relax and unwind.

Before you go to sleep, ask yourself:

  • Who or what made you happy today?
  • How did you make someone else happy?
  • What did you learn today?
