WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE HAPPY?

This term in Character, our year 8 pupils are examining happiness and wellbeing. We will be looking at the science of happiness, how it can be measured and to what extent we can control our emotions.

On Monday, pupils shared the things that made them happy. As our Character trait of the week is Honesty, we placed an emphasis on being truthful in our reflections. Pupils then categorised those items, gleaning a better understanding of why they make us feel happier.

By the end of this term, we hope our pupils will better understand their emotional responses and recognise ways in which they can adapt their lives to feel happier more of the time.
