Helping your Child at Home

Children's Mental Health Week 1st-7th February 2021.

Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. This year's theme is Express Yourself.

 

Taken from Twinkl.co.uk - 'The aim is to encourage children to express themselves in a variety of ways. For example, expressing yourself can be about sharing your feelings, thoughts and ideas through creativity. Children could express how they feel through a piece of artwork or writing, or they could express it through a performance such as dance or drama.

An important part of this theme is that expressing yourself doesn't mean that you're the best at something. It's all about finding a way to show other people who you are and how you feel. It's about showing how you see the world and finding a way to 'express yourself' which feels good to you. Expressing yourself in a way that's unique to you is a great way to improve mental wellbeing.

This year, Place2Be is encouraging both children and adults to explore the different ways that we can express ourselves. It's time to get creative and express your feelings, thoughts and ideas, through poetry, song, dance, or whatever it is that interests you.'
