Today Owls had a lovely trip to Harlow Carr Gardens to look for signs of Spring, linked to our season topic. We found some beautiful spring flowers in the Alpine House, where it was nice and warm, so we stayed in there for our snack!

Following Mental Health Week in school we have been thinking this afternoon about what makes us happy. Students completed an activity before taking part in some calming and therapeutic activities such as foot spas, massage and creative art tasks. Hopefully students will enjoy using these activities to help them when they need time to relax.
