Wellbeing - Mindfulness Resources

The emotional wellbeing of our children is just as important as their physical health. Good mental health allows children and young people to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults. 
It is Children's Mental Health Week this week with the theme being to 'Let's Connect'. Meaningful connections are important to our wellbeing, they provide a buffer against mental ill health. By talking openly about mental health from a young age, children can learn to better understand their emotions and feel safe enough to reach out for help when it's needed.
Talking about mental health and expressing our feelings can be difficult, no matter our age.

We did lots of activities to build our connections, we danced, sang, played a large scale rock, paper, scissor game, tried out different breathing techniques and lots more. Some of the children even took the time to complete the daily Taskmaster challenges, making rainbows and self portraits. Many, many thanks to you all x
