Children's Mental Health Week 2021 - Express Yourself...
The Duchess of Cambridge, has sent a message of support encouraging children and parents to find ways to share their thoughts and feelings, particularly during such a challenging time.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) have produced a fun activity pack; take a look to see if there is anything you would like to do:
IMPORTANT! Helpful Information about Coronavirus from the Children's Commissioner for Children
This children's guide to Coronavirus aims to answer children's questions about Coronavirus, tell children how to stay safe and protect other people and how to help them make the best of their time at home. This means it is written with YOU and all children in mind. It is everyone's responsibility to follow the government guidelines so we all stay safe.
I hope you enjoy participating in some of the activities suggested by the Children's Commissioner; if you do, why don't you consider writing about them on your class blog?
FYI: The Children's Commissioner for England is Anne Longfield OBE. She speaks up for children and young people so that policymakers and the people who have an impact on their lives take their views and interests into account when making decisions about them.
Keep safe everyone,
from Mrs Gough

Wellbeing Champion Minutes
Following a Wellbeing Champion meeting in March, your year 6 Wellbeing Champions wanted to help you take control of the stress and anxiety associated with your upcoming SATs.
Here is a Stress Busting Plan. This is what we have come up with to aid you with revision but also to prevent overload of pressure. You must ensure to maintain a good mental health and look after yourself - particularly during isolation.
We have outlined the next few weeks with activities that we want you to view as challenges. We are not setting homework – in fact it’s the complete opposite! We want you to take time for you, to learn new things, explore new places and communicate with people. We will not be checking up if you have completed the tasks but are available to offer support for anyone who does want it with anything. The tasks are flexible and are able to be swapped around as you wish.
Enjoy and keep safe.
