What is Mental Health?
What’s our starting point? Write down all the words, feelings and emotions you think are associated with mental health.
What is mental health?
Mental health is an individual's level of psychological wellbeing which can affect a person's mood and their thoughts and can sometimes dictate their behaviour. Everybody has mental health, and it can be better, worse or fluctuate depending on the individual.
Mental health can be thought of as being on a scale that can move up or down, a bit like a thermometer. We can move along the scale at any time, between being healthy or unwell. There are things we can put in place to help us feel better and move out of the struggling or unwell areas.

Children's Mental Health Week
This week is Children's Mental Health Awareness week. We all have mental health, it can be good and at times not so good. We have all had challenges to deal with since the start of the pandemic. Different people find different ways to relax and cope with stresses. Watch the videos below...
Can you think of ways to express yourself?
Remember, just as we look after our physical health(our bodies) by doing things like exercising, eating well and getting enough sleep, we also need to look after our mental health (our minds). One way of caring for our mental health is to notice and share how we are feeling. Expressing ourselves in creative ways can help us do this.
Think of something creative that you enjoy doing and see if you can create something that expresses how you are feeling at the moment. It may be more than one feeling.
Send in photographs of your creative way of expressing yourself, you can email the year 6 mailbox.

Nicki and Khan are good friends. They are in the same basketball team and play together every Saturday. Recently, their team lost a semi-final by two points and they weren't able to get into the finals. After the game, they were all disappointed, but they thought differently about why they had lost the game. Nicki said it was her fault the team had lost, because she missed an important three point shot. Nicki was really angry with herself. She was surprised to hear that Khan thought they had lost because two members of the team arrived late for the game and did not play well. Also, Khan thought it was bad luck that their team's best player was sick and couldn't play.
Blame fairly. How much of what happened was due to you, to others and to bad luck and circumstance?
Bad luck or circumstance
Think of the things that may have gone wrong for you over the past week, write bullet points of the problems and then decide whether it was you, others or bad luck and circumstance that caused things to go wrong. Try to be HONEST! BLAME FAIRLY!
Everybody experiences sadness, hurt, failure, rejection and setbacks.

Hello Year 6,
Last week we were looking at Kindness as a core value in PSHE.
During your time in isolation please keep a diary of 'Acts of Kindness'.
Every day, try to do some thing kind for someone in your family. It has to be in your household because none of us can go out until Thursday 15th October!
Bring your 'Acts of Kindness' in to school on Thursday 15th so that we can share what you have done. Each day record -
Who you were kind to
What you did
What the results were - your family's reaction to your kind deeds
If you want to print a Daily Diary form you can click on the link below. If you cannot print from home, simply make a diary from plain paper.
