The Hummingbird Project in Years 5 and 6

Year 5 and Year 6 are currently taking part in The Hummingbird Project , which is a six week Positive Education intervention.  The Project is designed to give pupils the tools they need to be as happy, healthy, and productive as possible.  So far the children have taken part in workshops about happiness, mindfulness, gratitude, kindness, character strengths, and resilience. These include fun activities that help them to understand how to put these ideas into practice and, most importantly, help them to  feel good about the future.
