Children’s Mental Health Week
The theme for Children’s Mental Health Week was ‘Growth’. This was introduced in special assemblies, and activities continued throughout the week. In their PSHEE lessons, pupils from Years 1 to 4 took time to reflect on who supports them and makes a difference in their lives, from teachers, parents and adults outside of school, to their peers and friends. They created beautiful support balloons to illustrate these relationships. Meanwhile, pupils from Years 5 to 8 reflected on how they have grown in the past, and would like to continue to grow in the future. This has sparked some thought-provoking discussions, as the pupils shared how their achievements and experiences had shaped them as individuals.
Something I remember having to learn in the past is riding a bike; that felt like a huge change when I was little!
I like to think of new possible jobs and careers, when I imagine my future self.
In the past, I have had to grow when moving schools and countries. It was hard, but it now means I have lots of sets of friends across the world
In the future, I see myself continuing to perform music, or piloting an airplane! I’d fly over to Las Vegas to see the Michael Jackson tribute performances.
The children had a special treat of hot chocolate and marshmallows at breaktime to mark the week.
