It’s Children’s Mental Health Week 1st -7th February… so it’s the perfect time to be thinking about your mental health and your wellbeing.
In school we talk about wellbeing a lot and it’s such an important thing to take care of… just as important as your physical health. This last year has been really difficult for everyone and there have been so many changes for you all. You’ve all accepted and embraced them and done your absolute best and we are so proud of you all for that.
This year’s theme for Children’s Mental Health Week is ‘Express Yourself’ so we want you to get creative and celebrate all the amazing things about yourselves. We are going to create a fabulous display outside the Pumpkin Room called ‘Reach for the Stars!’ but we need your help.
We would like you to do the following:
- Draw around your hand and then cut it out.
- On your cut out hand, write down some amazing things about yourself – your skills, strengths or talents, or amazing things you’ve done (e.g. some brilliant school work, helping your family, learning a new skill, sending a gift to someone to cheer them up etc). Anything amazing that you’re proud of!
- Decorate your hand and make it look beautiful!
- Take a photo of it and send it to us at: L.email@example.com
We look forward to seeing all of your amazing creations!
Mrs Byrne and Mrs Chapman

We hope you are all well and enjoying the home learning that your teachers planned for you to do. We understand that sometimes being at home can be challenging for lots of different reasons. When this happens it can make you feel sad, annoyed, angry, or something else! You might just start to feel a bit negative about what is bothering you, this is called a Thought Mix-up! Have a look at the Thought mix-up guide below to help you when this happens, it can really help! Remember you can also talk to your parents, a trusted adult or your teachers if you are unhappy, they will listen and try to help.
You can also email any worries to Mrs Byrne or Mrs Chapman through this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school number on 02392 262599.
