Welcome to our Well-Being Champions page!
Meet our fabulous Well-Being Champions this year who were elected by their classes to help us improve the well-being of the children and staff at St Paul's.
Here at St Paul's we are proud to be a healthy school. Our children's and staff's health and well-being is at the heart of our school life.
St Paul's Well-Being Champions are children from year 2 to year 6, who help to reinforce and develop aspects of health and well-being. We meet half termly and the children are involved in obtaining the views and ideas of our children and also feeding back to them work we are doing in relation to health and well-being.
This year the Well-Being Champions will help to develop the '5 Ways to Well-Being' in our school, healthy eating (including a healthy eating challenge week) and gardening among other things.
Have a look below at what the Well-Being Champions have achieved so far:
The health committee helped to develop Growth Mindsets and child-friendly tools and language that we can use in school. All classes now have posters in their classes that they refer to on a daily basis - The growth mindset 'steps', The 5 B's, Be Like The Bear Cub, The Secrets of Success and "I can't do it YET!":and this term the Well-Being Champions discussed whether they are being used well or whether classes need reminders to refer to these. We also began to discuss ways that the 5 Ways to Well-Being could be introduced in school.
Even when we were not at school at school, the Health Committee were thinking about the ‘5 Ways to Well-Being’ and how we can achieve those 5 ways at our school and at home.
While we were off school we had a think about how YOU can achieve the ‘5 ways to Well-Being’ each day! There will be more opportunities than you think!
Here’s a lovely Mindfulness activity you could do to help you take notice:
- When you go out for your daily walk spend 5-minutes talking about what you see, hear, smell and feel.
- Imagine you are on a safari, looking for animals that crawl, fly or walk, listening for sounds, and feeling the weather.
- You have to be quiet and alert.
- Turn on your “super-senses”.
- Pay attention to what’s around you: What can you see? What can you smell? What can you hear? How do you feel?
- Your will notice a whole new world, just by paying attention!
We have also recently enjoyed another "Feeling Good Week" spending time with friends on our scooters, writing notes about who made us feel good, playing board games together and culminating in our "Samba Day". The staff also enjoyed shared lunches and chatting to their "well-being buddy".
