During Children’s Mental Health Week (1-7 February) the Stanley community has been thinking about Mental Health and what we can all do about it.
Mr Hawley’s assembly on Mental Health was viewed by all children either in class or at home. You can see it if you click on the link below:
Mr Hawley said: “It is so important that we focus on good mental health, particularly at the moment. if we are able to help our children with tools to achieve this, they will be able to return to school happy and their learning will flourish. It has been great to see our teachers, children and families engage with our 'Inside Out' theme.”
The Inside Out theme saw children and parents wearing their clothes inside out and this helps us all to consider how someone may be feeling on the inside. It also helps us to remember to be kind and considerate to others all of the time. See the gallery below for some ‘Inside Out’ pictures
As well as wearing clothes inside out children have been talking about mental health and a series of mindfulness exercises for children have been sent to parents – a copy is also posted in the Virtual office on this website.
