Children's mental health week 2021

This year, Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. This year's theme is Express Yourself. Within the academy and at home, we have set the children tasks to express themselves and this will be celebrated with a 'Fun Friday' with all activities set around this year's theme. 

Year 4

Year 4 had a great week both at school and home for Children’s Mental Health Week. Every day, the children had a fun task to complete away from the computer screens. For example: Express Yourself through art, samba band challenge, drawing a self-portrait and nature art.

Then on Friday we came off timetable for the day and had a ‘Fun Friday’. The day was filled with fun activities that the children could enjoy with their friends in school and family at home. The children went on family walks, baked cakes and cookies, built dens, made tortilla pizza, played board games and created doodle art. The children were also asked to ‘Dress to Express’ for the day. We loved seeing all the expressive outfits when we held our class Zoom meetings.
