From the 1st to the 7th of February it was Children’s Mental Health Week. The theme of this week was ‘Express Yourself’
“Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.” (Place2be – Mental Health)
With this in mind, all children both in school and at home were encouraged to participate in ‘No screen Wednesday’. This allowed them to take part in a wide range of pursuits that would help them to recognise activities that make them feel good both mentally and physically. From cooking, to dancing, getting out and about in the great outdoors and listening to music. On Friday we took on the theme of, ‘Express Yourself’ and we asked all children to dress in the clothes that they felt best express their own individuality and identity.
Come rain or shine nothing stops the staff visiting the younger children who are learning remotely at home. We love hearing about and seeing the things everyone is getting up to during these unusual times. This week we have been thrilled to receive a whole host of snow fun pictures from our remote learners. In school we have also been making some snowy memories, getting creative and having fun!
Unfortunately, this week here in school we have been experiencing some technical difficulties with our Wi-Fi. We are happy to report that things are now back up and running but we wanted to say how proud we are of our committed remote learners who carried on regardless during this time.
