Positive Mental Health
AnnMarie Leonard, Donabate Portrane Educate Together:
On Positive Mental Health I have done Our Feel Good Songs : I share my feel good songs with the children (over the week in different lessons) (Happy Talk Captain Sensible) (Straighten Up and Fly Right by Nat King Cole) and tell them the memory each one illicits . The children share their favourites and explore how music can make us remember feel good moments/people we love/feel safe /feel energetic or calm. I then also ask the children to find out their parent/guardian's favourite song and also to ask their parent/guardian to tell them why. One that the children really love from more recent times is Imagine Dragons "On top of the World"
