PUPILS had fun making dens and cooking during their Do Something Different Day.

The special day took place at Bexton Primary School, and was planned as a part of the school’s Ethical Enterprise charity focus on ‘Place2Be’.

Knutsford Guardian:

The Do Something Different theme was a part of Children’s Mental Health Week, and encouraged everyone, including staff, to ‘find your brave’ by doing something they wouldn’t normally do.

Emily Armstrong, headteacher, said: “It was a wonderful day as the children worked in different year groups with different teachers across the school, and had a fantastic time trying out new activities planned by the staff.

Knutsford Guardian:

“The focus on Place2Be this term has really helped to develop resilience and their understanding of why life can feel tricky at times, and has provided strategies to overcome this.

"We had a wonderful day, making sure the children had lots of fun doing different things.

“At lunchtime we had some dancing, led by our brilliant year 6 children, and in the afternoon the children visited different classes to take part in non-curriculum-based activities.

Knutsford Guardian:

“There were mud kitchens, den making, origami, cooking, sewing and much more.

“A huge thank you to the staff who went over and above to make sure the children had a fantastic time. We also raised £340 for Ethical Enterprise. Thank you for all donations.”
