#TeamTrallwn Trallwnbury Dance
The fabulous Zack Franks has choreographed our very own #TeamTrallwn Trallwnbury Festival Dance for us all to learn!
Here is the Trallwnbury ‘Happy Dance’ to Blinding Lights by The Weeknd.
The video includes a tutorial of how to perform the dance, however you can skip to 13:00 minutes if they wish to just copy the dance completed.
(8th June-12th June)
This week is our WHOLE SCHOOL #TeamTrallwn Empathy Week; 9th June is Empathy Day.
Empathy is a vital human force, creating happier children, stronger communities and a better world.
We’ve never needed it more than right now.
Scientists say that we can train our brain with stories, as the more we empathise with characters, the more we can understand other people’s feelings.
If you want to have an insight into the resources available for the whole family take a look here: https://www.empathylab.uk/

The power of kindness
As the UK faces a global coronavirus pandemic, things can feel a little uncertain and even overwhelming. But, during these difficult times, one thing is clear: small acts of kindness make a big difference.
Across the country, there has been an outpouring of kindness and children and young people can play their role too. By understanding what we can all do to help tackle this virus, they’ll gain a sense of stability and resilience.
The power of kindness calendar helps children and young people learn about and carry out kind acts.

You can share your kind acts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #PowerofKindness and @BritishRedCross
