What a busy day we’ve had in EYC! As part of ‘World Mental Health Day’, we have come to school dressed in bright colours.  This is to make us feel happy.  We read the story of the ‘Colour Monster’ and acted it out using coloured scarves to represent the different emotions. We also played an emotions matching game and drew five people who we could talk to if we were feeling sad.

EYC have been reading the story of ‘The Treasure Hunt’.  We were very lucky to receive a letter from Percy inviting us to join in with his treasure hunt.  We had such fun following the clues and finding the treasure.  Luckily, the animals looked after the treasure before Percy had a chance to eat it all. Yummy!
