MINDUP - Empowering children through mindful practice based in neuroscience.

Our Brain

MindUP helps teachers create an optimistic classroom characterized by focused attention, gratitude, empathy, and connection to others. During our MindUP launch this week, we have been getting to know our brain. We are learning about three parts of the brain: Prefrontal Cortex (PFC),  Hippocampus and the Amygdala. We made model brains out of playdough, which show the 3 areas we are learning about and made posters detailing what the 3 areas do and other interesting facts about the human brain.

WWI Project

Why do we need to remember the events of World War One?

During our intriguing WWI project we will be focusing on how the war affected people in Burton Latimer.  We will be using a range of local history resources to describe how the war affected people, both in Britain and the wider world.   We are also looking at the artist Paul Nash and how he documented his experiences of War through his painting.

For more information on WWI and the affect it had on the British people look at these websites:
