Children at Banstead Prep participated in Children’s Mental Health Week (1-7 February) by focussing on their own wellbeing throughout the week’s live form time live sessions and a special day of off-timetable activities on Friday.
We followed Place2Be’s ‘Express Yourself’ theme and encouraged the children to express their feelings creatively, musically or energetically. Friday was dedicated to experiencing a variety of wellbeing activities, but most of all to have fun.
Here are some of the activities that the children enjoyed:
– Draw with Rob
– Create a Zentangle picture
– Make a set of your own Top Trump cards
– Make an obstacle course
You may like to try some of them at home.
As part of Children’s Mental Health Week, Year 4 have been writing and recording their own Mindfulness Podcasts that you can listen to below on our SoundCloud Channel.
