Mental health, well being and football.
Last week, we welcomed in to school, Chris Lumsdon, former Carlisle United and Sunderland footballer, to run a football session with Derwent Class, then talk to them about the importance of mental health and well being.
Derwent class thoroughly enjoyed the whole morning, with some of our usually 'less enthusiastic' footballers, showing that they have real grit and determination, as well as some fancy footwork and strong tackles.
The mental health discussion was well received and children were well involved in the discussion.
Thank you to Chris for an enjoyable and informative session, that was completely relevant in todays society!
