Mental Health Awareness Week
As part of Mental Health Awareness week, Year 5 have been taking part in a number of activities to help support our mental health. The children spent their morning outside in the sunshine reading and sharing their books with friends. There was lots of great reading out loud involved, with some children choosing to act out parts of the story together!
We also enjoyed our singing lesson with Ed, we have been learning 'The Lion Sleeps Tonight' and it's starting to sound fantastic - see if you can practise it at home too!
During the afternoon, we took several active breeaks where we practised some exercises or had a bit of a dance!
We had some calm, reflective towards the end of the day where we investigated watercolours and practised different techniques to make interesting patterns and designs. Have a look at some of our artwork below.
