Mental Health Week 1st -7th February 2021

This week is Children's Mental Health week!

This is more apt than ever right now. I'm sure the chidlren are missing school as much as we are  missing them. The world is very different right now so it is more important than ever to focus on our mental health, taking care of ourselves and each other.

 

Throughout lessons and activities this week we will be encouraging the children to express themselves. This is all about being creative in expressing who we are and how we feel.

 

There will be lots of fun activities going on in each class where children will be given the opportunity to consider how they are feeling and try out fun ways to express themselves. 

Keep your eyes on Seesaw for the activities children can get involved in and also for news and updates on class pages.

There is a link to the Children's Mental health website here where you can find the assembly if you missed it the first time and a message from HRH The Duchess of Cambridge all about this special week.

We really hope this opens up the opportunity for families to talk about how they are feeling in these difficult times.

As you are aware, KS2 take part in a weekly 'AmaSing' singing session. This takes place both in school and is proving to be a huge success when children are working remotely showcasing another way of allowing children to 'expressing themselves.' This week, the team from AmaSing will be delivering a special session fitting with Children's Mental Health week. We will be singing AmaSing's very own song that was written with children and families for Young Minds UK. As always, get your best moves ready as we prepare to learn a new dance routine. We hope as many of you as possible can get involved in this live session on Thursday 4th February at the usual time of 9:15am. Look at for details from your teacher posted on Seesaw.

Please remember there are also links to the myHappymind resources, which are well worth a look, and on the Mental Health Support page there are also links to the SSYP letter that can sign post you to further support.

 

We hope you all have a wonderful week expressing yourselves!
