In this topic, we learnt about how to take responsibility for our health and well-being. Linked to our Science topic, we learnt about different types of drugs and their effect on our bodies. We also thought about our physical and mental health and how we can support others and advise them where to get help. During this topic, we also thought about gangs and considered some of the strategies if we felt pressurised.
"I know you hear lots of information about driving under the influence of alcohol, but I didn't realise that drugs could influence your driving too! I think there needs to be a lot more information about this for the public." Oliver
"You hear lots of stories about gangs in the news. I think that some people might think that it is normal to be part of a gang. I learnt that there is a difference between a group of friends and a gang." Evie
"I enjoyed learning about the different ways to support our mental health. It's really important to look after our mental health after returning to school from lockdown. It's nice to know that we can ask anyone in school if we are upset or struggling." Thomas
