At Worthinghead we are very lucky to have several animals in school as part of an on-going provision for wellbeing and mental health. Children who are incredibly anxious or upset are encouraged to spend a few minutes with the guinea pigs in their lap or stroking and hand feeding the rabbit. With some of our children experiencing challenging home lives, being able to come and relax and even share their thoughts with the pets can provide some much-needed comfort and time to reflect. The children all have a chance to help care for and clean the chickens. This helps the children to understand looking after and caring for animals.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
