During this unprecedented time, many of us may have feelings of frustration, worry, anxiety as we juggle to cope with the current situation. This is the same for both adults and children, whatever their age.
To help our families and to raise awareness of the importance of mental health and wellbeing, Spring Grove school will be participating in Children’s Mental Health Week with the charity Place2be. This organisation works with schools to help young people and their families overcome some the challenges they may face with mental health.
The theme this year for Children’s Mental Health week is Express Yourself! Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through for example, art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film; basically doing activities that make you feel good!
Next week, from 1st – 7th February, we will be sharing a range of activities and resources for the whole family to join in with. Finding healthy ways to express ourselves can help us feel good, happy, relaxed, excited and connected – something we definitely need right now!
On Friday 5th February we will be having a fun Dress to Express day where children (and adults) can express themselves through their clothes and hair, wearing things that make them feel good, choosing a range of clothes and colours that express how they are feeling. The idea is to make it simple and fun!
