Children’s Mental Health week – 1st – 7th Feb
As mentioned on Friday, this week, as part of Children’s Mental health week, we are going to be engaging in a range of activities. We’d love to see you joining in. Send your photos so we can share them in a video at the end of the week.
Tuesday – Tuesday Tales
On Tuesday we are asking all the children to join us for a story. A Teams invite will be sent out. Make a cosy reading den, get your favourite drink and snack and join us at 2:45pm
Wednesday – Inside out day
|Wear an item of clothing inside out as a way of making us all stop and think. How someone looks on the outside doesn’t necessarily reflect how they are truly feeling on the inside, so it is important to always be kind and think of others.
Thursday – Fun Challenge Thursday.
