Mrs Large will check in with them via e-mail as soon as possible to check you are all ok, and to help you with your remote learning if needs be.
Children’s Mental Health Week 2022:
We are celebrating Children’s Mental Health Week at the moment! This year’s theme is ‘Growing Together’. Mental Health is SO important. We are lucky at St Johns that we spend a lot of time learning about our emotions and self-regulation.
Here is a video introduction to Children’s Mental Health Week: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dySvIlAuiEk&t=13s
Can you make a poster advertising Children’s Mental Health Week? Imagine you have a friend who hasn’t heard of it. What would you include on the poster to get them excited about it?
Human beings change and grow – we do it all the time and in many ways. Emotional growth is often a gradual process that happens over time, and sometimes we might feel a bit ‘stuck’. At these times, we are reminded of how much we need others in our lives to help us to keep growing.
Here are some videos of some grown ups you might recognise talking about growth and the challenges they have faced and overcome. Watch the videos (you can choose 2 or 3 if you like) and think about what is said. If a grown up at home feels well enough, you might like to watch them together and talk about them.
Here is a little picture to remind you of the work you will have been doing in school based around ‘Zones of Regulation’. It may help you if you deal with any big emotions you may experience while you are off school poorly. Remember – it’s ok to not be ok! The self regulation tools you have learned at school will help, and it’s ALWAYS worth talking to a trusted adult about how you are feeling.
Then show us what you’ve learned (make poster, write an information text, show your understanding via a cartoon... up to you!)
Remember, there are lots more great remote learning resources on the school website here: https://www.st-johns-pri.bham.sch.uk/whole-school-online-resources/
