Exploring Wellbeing in IEP

Our first unit of inquiry this year is ‘Who We Are’ and students have been exploring how the choices we make impact on our wellbeing. We have spent time investigating food groups, questioning the importance of exercise, discovering facts about sleep hygiene and most recently, learning about our feelings and how to support our mental health.

This week, students participated in activities like ‘feelings charades’, mindfulness colouring, yoga and breathing exercises and created resources that could help ‘pick them up’ after a bad day: listing their best qualities.
Additionally, reflection is an important aspect of personal development and on Friday afternoon, students were given the opportunity to write down one thing that they thought was going well and one thing that they still want to improve. This information will inform the direction of teaching and learning for staff and students alike!
