Children's Mental Health Week

This week is Children's Mental Health Week. This year the theme is 'express yourself'. We can express ourselves in lots of different ways-through our spoken and written words, through our art work, through movement and dance and through music. 


It is important to remember that when we express ourselves we don't have to be perfect. Sometimes we will be feeling sad or angry, sometimes we might make mistakes. It is okay if we do. 


Listen to the story of the Beautiful Oops by Barney Saltzberg to see what he does when he makes a mistake. 


Then have a go at creating your own artwork from a squiggle by watching the video below. 


Most importantly, have fun! 

There are also some lovely videos on the BBC linked to their nature programme Winter watch. They are perfect to watch when you feel like connecting with nature or are looking to relax and calm down.
