This week has been Children’s Mental Health week and the theme for this year was ‘Express Yourself’. Miss Reynolds created activities for the children to work on throughout the week, a sample of which can be seen below. These tasks have encouraged children to remind themselves of what makes them happy and to take time to relax and spend time away from computer screens. On Friday 5th February Tockwith Primary will hosted a dress down / dress up day where children wore clothes that reflected how they were feeling. This included wearing certain colours to show their emotions on that day, accessorising their outfits with bright headbands or colourful socks!! Children at home were encouraged to join in and dress down at home and send in photographs to show how they were feeling.
We were also delighted to receive a donation of cakes and bananas from The Co-op supermarket for the children in support of Children’s Mental Health Week. Thank you!
