Year 1 are enjoying their My Happy Mind sessions and have completed module one Meet Your Brain. They have met Berty and Betty Brain and also have learnt about Team HAP and the parts of the brain they represent (hippocampus, amygdala, prefrontal cortex).
They have found out that when they are cross or scared their amygdala takes over and the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex go to sleep. To wake them up and calm us back down, we can do Happy Breathing.
This is a very calming experience and we all enjoy it very much.
