At Woodmansterne, we value a child’s mental health as much as their physical health. We want to equip the children at Woodmansterne with the skills to take care of their minds and emotional wellbeing. We are using the Head First curriculum to give our children the necessary skills to help them identify, self-manage and learn to understand and control their emotions. Throughout our whole curriculum we are developing ways to help children improve their well-being through outdoor learning, PSHE lessons, e-safety and a healthy diet.

Express Yourself - Children's mental health week

To continue with the theme of ‘Express Yourself’ in Children’s Mental Health Week, there will be no online or pre-recorded lessons on Thursday 11th February 2021. We know how hard the children and families have been working at home to manage online learning. We are all committed to continuing this for as long as we are working in this way, but we know that for well-being, it is important to balance children's online learning with some time away from screens. So, on this day, we will be asking pupils to learn offline and ‘express themselves’ in a variety of different activities.  There is no expectation for you to submit any work on this day but if the children would like to share any work with their teacher they can email or tweet them.

Brain Break

These brain breaks here may be particular useful after spending long periods sitting or using technology. The brain break may be relaxing or energizing, but they are always intended to get the body and mind going and help children focus afterwards.
