Gareth from the Darlington SSP once again visited Class 4/5S this morning to introduce another ‘Brainy Bunch’ character. This week the children were introduced to Cortisol. Gareth told us that Cortisol is a chemical that warns us about things and as such can be associated with negative feelings like fear and anxiety. The children were invited to take part in a mystery box activity: placing their hands in without knowing what was inside.
The children were given some top tips for reducing the amount of cortisol in their bodies, this included: drinking water, limiting screen time (and disabling ‘blue light’ on tablets and phones) and eating pears.
