Children’s Mental Health Week
To mark Children’s Mental Health Week, each class completed an activity related to this year’s theme: Growing Together. The aims of Children’s Mental Health Week this year was to introduce the idea of growth and change, and to emphasise that we can keep growing – even when things get tough.
In Year 5, we thought about the things we need to keep our minds healthy, such as learning a new skill.
We thought about the following questions:
- What new skill have I recently learnt?
- What steps did I take to get there?
- What went wrong?
- What helped me keep going?
- What did I learn from the experience?
We then made a comic book to show the development of our skills and how we persevered to succeed!
