Children's Mental Health Week 2021

Children's Mental Health Week 2021

 

This year's focus - Expressing ourselves

Each day we will look at a particular aspect around Mental Health but the core focus being our children and how they express themselves in certain situations. 

Have a look below to see what we have been up to :) 

Marvellous Monday

Today we watched a virtual assembly by Oak National Academy which discussed the positive impact physical health can have on our Mental Health, and what different activities we can do which can promote positive Mental Health.

After this, we discussed over Google Classroom what Mental Health means to us? and what we do to make ourselves feel good.

Talking Tuesdays

Today the children have spent a large part of the afternoon having discussions around Mental Health. They have spoken about who they feel they can confide in when they have any worries or concerns, what they do to boost their mood and how they have learnt to put a positive spin on things that are out of their control, and most importantly, what makes them happy. From these discussions, the children either made a poster, a poem, a rap or their own affirmations.

Wearing Inside Out Clothes Wednesday

Today we all wore our t-shirts and jumpers inside out, this was to show that how someone looks on the outside, doesn't necessarily reflect how they are feeling on the inside. The children were presented with a range of situations in regards to not coping well, as a class they discussed how they would have used self-regulation in these situations, and how this would change things.

Thinking Thoughts Thursday

Today the children have looked at how negative thoughts can really have an impact on our Mental Health, and how our resilience and self-regulation can help turn these thoughts into positive ones.

Feel Good Friday

On Fridays, we like to focus our afternoons on Mental Health, and this Friday is no different. The children have spent the afternoon focusing on mindfulness and yoga, and how this helps with our thoughts and positive mindset.
