This week is Mental Health Awareness Week and the focus this year is 'Nature'. Being close to nature is so beneficial for our mental health and really helps to prevent mental distress and promotes good well-being for all. For more information, please watch this video by mentalhealth.org:
To encourage our children, and their families, to get out into nature (and to help them experience the benefits to their mental health), we would love them to take photographs of themselves doing what they love outdoors.
I love walking among the bluebells in the nearby woods, for example, and playing with my cats in the garden, not to mention spending time with my son and family outdoors. What do you like doing in nature, children?
Whether you love playing sport, walking your dog, spending time on the beach (or even just in the sandpit during these odd times!) or relaxing in the garden, we would love you to send in your photos for a whole school display to promote the benefits of nature on our mental health. Please email your photos to your class' home learning email address as we would love to see, and share, your photographs.
Get outside, enjoy nature, use your senses, exercise in nature, combine nature with creativity and protect nature. Feel the benefits. And please remember to share your photos and experiences with us! Thank you :)
