Children’s Mental Health Week

Good morning Year 1!

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and this year’s theme is Express Yourself.

Expressing yourself is about how you show your feelings and ideas – it could be through art, music, writing, poetry, dance and drama. Most importantly, it’s about doing activities that make you feel good and show who you are (your personality).

The Children’s Mental Health Week’s website has a range of ideas and resources, including:-

  • A link to a Children’s Mental Health Week assembly
  • Free resources for families (in the Parents and Carers section)


This week on Seesaw, Mrs Gavriel will also be reading poetry and stories connected to the ‘Express Yourself’ theme as well as suggesting some activities you could try.

Finally, as parents and carers, you also need to look after your mental health. On the Merry Hill website, there is a list of sources of advice and support available to you.
