Following Mental Health Awareness Week, it's been wonderful to receive so many photos of the children connecting with nature and I would love to share them with you here. I hope you feel inspired to get outdoors and connect with nature, whether that's for exercise, pleasure, conservation, creativity, mindfulness or whether you bring the outdoors into your home: the mental health benefits are tremendous. Thank you so much to all the children, parents and grandparents who got in touch to share their adventures- the photos and messages have been truly uplifting :)
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 :)
Well done to James. He is a star that shines brightly day in day out, week in and week out! James is an always child. He always does his absolute best in everything he undertakes. He is always polite and courteous and a true role model for the class. He is also incredibly hard working. We all admire him and thoroughly enjoy him being in our Class 1 family.
Mrs Swann and Mrs Rodgers.
Well done to Remy and Mia our joint star of the week - I just couldn't choose between them! Both have been working so incredibly hard in all areas including Reading, writing, phonics and maths. Both have been absolute super stars and we are very proud of them!
