Children's Mental Health Week
We had a special assembly on Tuesday with Bex Alexander (who is an Education Mental Health Practitioner) and comes into school every Tuesday.
In the assembly, the children explored how connecting with other people in a positive way can help us to feel happy, content, and that we belong. When we don't connect with others, we can feel sad, lonely, angry and frustrated. The children were set a challenge to connect with someone this week in any way they can.
Ideas they had were smiling at others, being kind to someone, playing with them on the playground. The children were so responsive and had some really great insights.
