When thoughts and feelings rush and shout, you can use big breaths to sort them out.
Mrs Churchill reads a story for Friday Assembly
We have received lots of new books in school all about looking after each other and ourselves. Mrs Churchill read 'No Longer Alone' by Joseph Coelho and Robyn Wilson-Owen. There is lots to think about in this book - the most important messages being it is OK to not be OK and there are adults who will listen and understand.
The blurb says: 'A comforting story about loss, feelings and the power of being heard. No Longer Alone is about the variety of emotions we feel during hard times and never, ever feeling alone.'
An important message for us all right now.
