The week beginning 1st February 2021 was Children’s Mental Health Week and we recognised this week in year 5 in a number of ways.
We started the week by discussing the theme ‘Express Yourself.’ We talked about different ways you can express yourself creatively and why it is important to find healthy ways to express yourself.
We had many opportunities throughout the week to express ourselves creatively. One of the activities was to make a Gratitude Tree which involved collecting twigs and decorating them. The children enjoyed writing what they are grateful for on their trees.
