PSED – Supporting Children’s Mental Health Week
01 -05 February 2021
Hello Parents / carers
Keeping Happy and Healthy During Lockdown
1st- 5th of Feb is Share your Scarf week – supporting Children’s Mental Health Week.
Our school is given extra SCARF at Home resources to promote children’s mental health by celebrating the SCARF values:
SAFETY, CARING, ACHIEVEMENT, RESILIENCE and FRIENDSHIP.
The theme for Children's Mental Health Week is Express Yourself! Being creative in any way - art, music, cooking, gardening anything at all, really - boosts our mental health.
Our current, restricted lives, often overloaded as we juggle work, home-schooling and the every-day tasks of caring for others, can affect our mental health, whatever our age.
Finding a few minutes each day - or even each week - to do something creative, is as important as daily exercise.
There are some simple, creative activities that don't need a lot of equipment, just an imagination! Children can do these alone, or together with you!
