We’ve been learning about the parts of the brain over the last couple of weeks to understand exactly what happens when we get stressed or anxious and how we can overcome it. This is all in conjunction with the school-wide initiative Mind-Up.
The Amygdala, Hippocampus and Pre-Frontal cortex are the main parts involved and to help us remember them, each part has an animal symbol, the guard dog, the hippo and the owl.
We’ll be continuing to learn about them over the next coming weeks.
