Monday Morning Message
Good Morning Wonderful People!
This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and it's all about expressing yourself -expressing your feelings, ideas and individuality can boost wellbeing. Creative activities have the power to improve your mood and expressing how you feel can help you feel better about yourself.
It would be great if you could email us a photo of you doing something that you enjoy or that expresses your creativity. You might play some uplifting music, create a dance routine, write, or draw in a journal, try out a new hobby... it's really up to you!
Expressing yourself isn’t about putting on a performance or being the best at anything, and it doesn’t have to be arty. You may express your personality in the way you dress, or your hairstyle. It can be an activity that you do alone, like writing a diary, or with others, like singing. It’s not what you do or who you do it with that matters – how you feel when you’re being creative is what counts.

National Storytelling Week
Did you realise that this week is also National Storytelling Week? We all love stories, so in order to mark this special week, I have created a special folder which includes some stories for you to listen to! Why don't you find time to read some stories to others in your household or even online! Maybe your grandparents or aunties, uncles and cousins would appreciate a story! Don't forget to read clearly with lovely expression and intonation
I thought it would be nice to punctuate the week with a few mindfulness moments. I hope you enjoy them!
This week, please send your GRETA FACT FILE to me.
Goooooooood morning Year 6 and happy Monday to you all!
How are you? no.. don't just read on, I am actually asking you the question! HOW ARE YOU? It is really important to check in with yourself and ask how you feel sometimes. Some times you will realise that actually you are ok and feel just fine and other times you will realise that you don't feel ok and please remember .. ITS OK NOT TO BE OK!
When you don't feel ok its really important that you talk to people, a parent, a friend a relative or someone at school!
This week is Children's Mental Health Week and so I have attached a video checking in with how you are feeling and also checking that those around you are doing ok too?
It has a mindfulness/relaxation exercise for you. It lasts about 15 minutes. Please have a look at it and maybe try some of the things I've asked you to do.
The main thing to remember this week ..
Keep talking - call a friend who you haven't chatted to for a while.
Keep active - have a walk or run or do some exercises and see how it makes you feel.
Get outside- fresh air makes you feel better, even the rain can be exhilarating!
Don't get taken in by social media etc. Remember people only put on the 'happy' and 'beautiful' photos. Real life is very rarely like social media. This is something we have talked about a lot in class .... so to prove the point and hopefully bring a smile to your faces ... here is my example..
So have a good week! look after yourselves and keep talking! We will get through this!
You know where we are if you need anything.
Love Mrs Fulton x
