5LR enjoyed completing a range of tasks during Children’s Mental Health Week at home as well as in school – well done everyone!
As part of Children’s Mental Health week, we expressed ourselves in a variety of ways. We thought about how ‘amazing’ we all are and, after completing some sentences, we decorated the word. After reading the story of ‘Beautiful Oops’, we discussed how mistakes are a good thing as they help us learn. We changed an ‘oops’ into something beautiful. We also thought about how emotions could be represented on masks and faces. We had a great week exploring how to express ourselves!
As part of our work in Children’s Mental Health week, we thought about doodling ‘Zen patterns’ and how this form of expression could help us with our emotions. We found it really relaxing, listening to some classical music whilst doodling.
When we had finished our doodles, we chose two of them which we liked the best and used printing ink and polystyrene tiles to print an alternating pattern. It was great fun and we were really proud of our work!
