Mental Health Awareness Week

13th May 2022


Year 1 took time out during Mental Health Awareness Week, to focus on our Mental Health and understand some feelings that we might have. Year 1 then enjoyed a special Friday with activities designed to promote feeling happy and keeping our minds happy and healthy.
๐ŸŽ‰Children enjoyed Poppin’ Pilates- they always look forward to these very active and engaging sessions.
๐ŸŽ‰Children brought in a special treat snack to enjoy. We had been talking about a ‘balance’ and how it is ok to enjoy all the yummy snacks as a treat. ( The weather unfortunately kept us indoors for this)

๐ŸŽ‰We then enjoyed some extended story time in the library ๐Ÿ“–
๐ŸŽ‰Finally the children had identified playing with their special toys as what makes them happy. The children brought in one toy from home and enjoyed playing with these during a special golden time session.

๐ŸŒŸAll children will experience a variety of emotions at some stage. It is important that they understand all feelings are ‘ok’ and are given strategies to cope with what is happing in their daily lives ๐Ÿ˜€ The children had a really fun day that took on board all their ideas from ongoing discussions throughout the week. It was lovely to see so many smiles ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜„โ˜บ๏ธ
