This week is Children’s Mental Health Week. Make sure you take some time out for yourself to relax, reflect and ‘Express Yourself’ by sharing feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through things like art, writing, music, dance and baking. We hope that by doing things that make you feel good, you can improve your mental health, especially when facing tough situations or difficult times.

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week, therefore we will thinking more about our feelings and ways to ‘Express Yourself’ which is this year’s theme!
Look through ‘PSHE – Express Yourself’ which explains what expressing yourself means and offers different ways to express yourself. Your task is to then find a way to express yourself! This could be singing, dancing, baking, painting, drawing, origami, playing music, creating a song and much more. Take a look at slide 5 on the PowerPoint for more ideas. There are some mindfulness colouring sheets in Learning Resources and there are some links below to help you ‘Express Yourself’.
We look forward to seeing all of the different ways you have been expressing yourself!
Listen to 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. Today you will be listening to Chapter 12 and 13.
