This week is...

Children's Mental Health Week 2021

The theme this year is 'Express Yourself'.


Good morning. I hope you have all had a relaxing weekend and are all well. As you can see above, this week is a special one as it is Children's Mental Health week. It is a week in which we can take time to remind ourselves of the importance of taking care of our mental health and look for ways in which we can have a healthy mind. Mental health includes our feelings, emotions and well-being and affects how we think, feel and act. This year the theme for the week is 'Express Yourself' and on Friday we will take part in 'Dress to Express' by using our clothing to highlight our thoughts and feelings. You might like to dress up in your favourite colour, as a superhero, in a princess dress, your posh frock, sparkly clothes, spotty clothes, sporty clothes, or however you choose to express yourself. Get thinking about how you would like to dress on Friday!


The timetable for today can be seen below and the week is being kicked off by a Virtual Assembly with Oak Academy. There will be lots of activities to promote good and positive mental health and well-being throughout the day and week. Taking time to talk, time to think, being creative, moving and listening and going outside, are all ways in which we can look after our mental health. This week I will offer ideas for all of the above during choosing time activities should you wish to choose one or more to complete. The most important thing is that whatever you choose to do, you have lots of fun!


Many thanks to you all for getting in touch before 10am each day to let me know whether you will be taking part in home learning. As those of us in Reception who have been in school are all now isolating again, could the parents/carers of the children who have been in school up until now please drop me a quick message each morning too. Any questions about this, please just shout.
