Mental Health Charters
Each year group has been reading the book Everybody Worries and using this as a way to introduce our mental health, how to deal with worries and how to look after our mental health. We learnt that everyone has worries and that it is extremely important that we share them. We also learnt how to promote good mental health, looking after our minds. Every year group has created their own charter which outlines how they will look after their own mental health.
Take a look at our charters:
As part of the theme 'Express Yourself', each year group had a range of live lessons which encouraged them to express themselves. They took part in live art lessons, making happiness jars, a talent show and even had a campfire to throw their worries in!
Dr Seuss class have made an excellent effort in taking part in Children’s Mental Health Week! They have explored their own thoughts and feelings through the story ‘Worrysaurus’ and wrote letters to their friends to give them advice on what to do when they are feeling worried. We are just so lucky to have such kind and considerate children in our school.
In maths this week we looked at adding and subtracting using a number track and even used a ruler in some cases!
Well done to all of the children who took part in activities from their well-being menus. From making jigsaws to cooking! Here are just some of the things they have been up to this week.
What a bumper week we have of fantastic photos, thanks to all the parents who shared these images on our Mental Health week assignments. In year 1, there was a fantastic talent show, children created feelings wheels, practised mindfulness and drew a bag of happiness!
In Year 2, children created silly self-portraits to express themselves (can you learn something about each child from what you see?), used body parts to show what we feel and what is good about us and, most importantly, spent time away from screens doing things they love.
