Children's Mental Health Awareness Week 2021
We celebrated Children's Mental Health Awareness Week with lots of fun activities to help our children express themselves both in school and at home. Our children enjoyed painting to music to express their emotions, participated in mindful colouring, emotions yoga and even a feelings massage.
We celebrate Anti-bullying week each year at White Ash by dedicating a whole week to friendship. All of the children at White Ash are great friends and pride themselves on being kind and helpful to others.
This year the children had lots of fun reading stories about friendship including ‘Don’t Hog the Hedge’, ‘The Kindness Elves’ and ‘The Rainbow Fish’. They also got very creative making friendship paper chains with their favourite friendship qualities written on, made friendship potions to decide what makes a good friend and even discussed how friends made us feel by recognising and sorting emotions.
