Here at Quarry Mount, we have several displays to support wellbeing and recommend 'feel good' films and 'songs for wellbeing' as well as self-regulation emotion control, including Professor Steve Peter's Hidden Chimp. Here are our recommendations that you could use at home also:

Quarry Mount's Top 5 Feel Good Films are:
1. CoCo
2. Inside Out
3.The Lorax
4. Wall-E
5.Parent Trap

Quarry Mount's Top 5 Songs for Wellbeing are:
1. Count on me by Bruno Mars
2. Roar by Katy Perry
3. Can't stop the feeling by Justin Timberlake
4. This is me, The Greatest Showman
5. Everything is awesome, The Lego Movie

These films and songs are recommended as they cover loss, feelings, community, resilliance and conflict resolution

We hope that our pupils are so enthusiastic about their learning that they want to learn at home.  Here are some ways you can support your child:
  • Listening to them read (see the documents below for support with questioning them about their books)
  • Discussing characters and storylines from TV programmes or films
  • Baking together (weighing and measuring)
  • Practising telling the time
  • Working out totals and change on a visit to the shops
  • Encouraging them to do Mathletics and Reading Eggs online
