Last week in collective worship, we learnt about Children’s Mental Health Week. To support parents at home we will be posting some resources that you may find useful.

Young Minds have created a useful poster highlighting ways to give support to children when they have angry feelings or outbursts and may help families start a conversation and talk about each other’s feelings.

Key Stage Assembly: Children’s Mental Health Week

By Collective worship, Equality, PSHE

At school, we normally have key stage collective worship on a Thursday. During this time we learn about different religious events and explore special days and weeks.

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and for the next two days I’ll post videos that we were planning to look at in school.

This year’s theme is Express Yourself. How do you express yourself? It is important to express yourself or how you are feeling?

Here is a short film showing how some people express themselves through art.

It seems like the winter lockdown is going on forever and the grey drizzly weather doesn’t help; we hope you are managing to find time to look after yourselves and stay resilient.

Mrs Cooper (SENDCO), has attached a copy to our Special Educational Needs Resource page. We have a wealth of resources on this page that you may find useful.
