The 2022 Mental Health awareness week will take place from 9th-15th May and this year the theme is loneliness.
Please see below for links with more information.
Each Friday we celebrate our week with a Fantastic Friday morning session. During this time the children can participate in a creative, fun and cheerful activity. This time gives opportunities for the children to have an open conversation with a member of staff and express their feelings, worries or thoughts. The children are encouraged to have social interactions with their peers.
Also from 7th - 13th February (which is Arts week at Sheldwich) there will be a special Children's Mental Health Week and the theme for this is 'Growing Together'. We will be looking at this in more detail during Arts Week.
We know there is huge amount of information online regarding the mental health of children but we feel the following websites are particularly helpful and contain some really useful and practical information.
We have also attached a link to the BBC bitesize page which has some child friendly videos which may help in supporting the Year 6 children with their transition to secondary school.
Below is the Nature themed information pack from 2021 Mental Health Awareness Week which you may still enjoy looking at with your children.
