As we come to the end of ‘Children's Mental Health Awareness’ week, we hope that you will continue to use the tools which will help your children whilst they continue their learning at home. One way to do this is having structure and routine in your day and right now, this is more important than ever. We know that many of you have already got a great daily structure at home which is one of the key things to help keep the children feeling safe and secure. The attached poster explains how you can help your child feel secure through a consistent routine.
Across the country, more and children are struggling in these uncertain times and if you feel that your child is finding it tough then please read through the ‘8 ways to help children struggling in lockdown’ posters attached to this email. One of the main things you can do as a parent is to keep that connection between you and your child and we hope these ideas will help you to achieve this.
With half term fast approaching, we want to encourage everyone to take some time for themselves and do some things you enjoy. Attached is a road to wellbeing and a road to getting active as ideas to help you with this (these are just ideas – please do not feel that you have to do them!)
We would also like the children to try to complete one or more acts of kindness this weekend and write it in the heart template (also attached), decorate it and then either send us a photo of it or bring it in when we return to school. We’ll be creating our very own ’Kindness Tree’ at school with all the hearts created
And finally, reminder that on the school website we have uploaded many resources suitable for both children and parents which offer advice and activities to support positive mental health. We hope you have all had a good week and please remember you can call us at any point if you need some advice or support.
