They also took part in a road safety assembly, dancing workshops and The Daily Mile, a nationwide initiative to improve the physical health and wellbeing of young people by running set distances each day in a fun and inclusive manner.

The day ended with a personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education session.

Lucy Bowden, SENDCO at Poplar Farm, said: “Throughout the year, we strive to provide the children with a happy place to learn, but also look for ways that we can develop our children into life-long happy and healthy men and women. We use PSHE to help the children build on these life skills and their awareness of mental

health and physical wellbeing.”
