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
