Mental Health Week 2020

Happy Monday P4! Hope you all had a good weekend.



We love seeing your work on your blog, teams page or by email. We are enjoying hearing what you have been up to at home. You are all working so hard and taking on the challenge of learning in a different way! Well done everyone! Keep it up!;-)

In celebration of ‘Mental Health Awareness Week 2020’ and the theme of ‘Kindness’ we are encouraging you all to get mentally healthy by spreading a little kindness.

The calendar below includes two acts of kindness each day – one for someone else and one for yourself.

It is important to be kind to yourself too!

You could follow the ideas on the calendar or create your two tasks each day. At the end of the week you might want to think about what helped you to feel happy this week.
