Well-being and Mental Health:
Our own well-being during times of crisis, whether personal, local, national or global, is something to take care of. On this page, you will find links that provide some general activities or guidance to try to alleviate the potential stress of being isolated in your home. The main message we are sharing with you is to remember, these are unprecedented times and there is no 'right way' of doing things. Be kind to yourself and take each day as it comes.
What are the Great Binfields staff doing to keep positive?
You might be wondering what all the GBPS adults are doing during these strange times; we are working very, very hard to make sure that things run smoothly for our school and for your learning at home. We are all doing lots of new things, developing new skills and adapting to changing circumstances . When we are not working, we have all been finding different ways to keep positive and keep smiling . Read on to find out what everyone has been up to (these will be updated regularly)...
-Miss Grove has been listening to lots of music and is enjoying discovering new artists. She is also trying to keep active with bike rides, walks and yoga.
-Mrs Folan is enjoying daily walks with her children and dogs, taking time to spot lots of beautiful spring time flowers.
-Mrs Ellis is keeping busy by taking on lots of crafty sewing projects including a hand appliquéd quilt so that she has a lovely reminder of this unusual time. We’re looking forward to seeing the finished product.
