Newsletter 05/02/2021

During the 8th – 11th February we will be supporting Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is ‘Express yourself’ and we’re encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas. With schools partially closed and lots of uncertainty, children and young people’s mental health has never been more important. The activities for the week are as follows and we would encourage all students to take part:

Feelings Matter – House Tutor Event

On Tuesday 9th February students will take part in a virtual House Tutor group discussion on the importance of talking all about your feelings. Students will be shown a range of video clips which include Premiership football stars and Prince William discussing the importance of looking after your mental health.

YOLO (You Only Live Once Debate)

There are many ways that you can express yourself as an individual – but some ways are celebrated and accepted more than others. Many people will also feel like they don’t have the freedom to express themselves in the way that they’d like to. During the YOLO activity, students will be asked to think about and discuss two key questions – Does the phrase YOLO give you the freedom to express yourself in any way you like? And Does social media promote self expression?

7 Days about Me – House Competition

One of the main activities for the week is to encourage students to take time away from the screen and create a photo montage about themselves. We would like to challenge all students to take one photo a day that captures and expresses some aspect of themselves either literally or in abstract form. Photos could include their current likes and dislikes, strengths, interests, dreams and passions. All photo montages should be submitted by Thursday 11th February to House Tutors. Winners will receive House points for their House.

Dress to Express

On Thursday 11th February  we will be holding a ‘Dress to Express’ day. We would encourage all students to wear something a little different (don’t go and buy anything – be creative). Their outfit should be a form of self-expression – perhaps they could make it as colourful as possible. Students should take a photo of their outfit and submit it to their House Tutor on 11th February.  All photos will then be used for an express yourself gallery in school.

Have a restful weekend.
