On Friday we were fortunate enough to to have a wonderful visit from our therapy dog Bernard.
We love it when Bernard comes to school. Spending time with therapy dogs can improve self esteem, lift moods and help to calm and relax the children. We always have lots of smiley faces around school when Bernard is in the building.
In the new year Bernard will be visiting every class to say hello and give the children his ideas on how to stay mentally healthy.
Bernard's Wellbeing Tip Of The Week
In the past St Bernard dogs worked as Alpine rescue dogs so they are quite used to staying warm in the cold weather.
Even so Bernard says when the cold winter weather comes, he loves nothing more than getting snuggled up in his favorite warm PJs and having cuddles with his owners Lucy and Tiffany. He loves spending family time watching Christmas films, making Christmas cards ready to send to his friends, and playing games like charades and snap. It always makes him feel happier.
This week after school get wrapped up warm and have some special time with your family. You could even make your own Christmas themed snap cards.
