Children’s Mental Health Week

This week is Children’s Mental Health Week. This year’s theme is Growing Together.

In P5 we have been considering how we grow, who helps us grow and how we can help others grow. We discussed that “failure” does not always need to be a negative word and how we grow from our mistakes. 

The children were asked to create their own ‘Support Balloons’ and consider the people/animals in their lives who help them grow and who they would turn to if things got tough or if they needed support. They then connected a line between all these individuals. Here is a sample of the support balloons the children made this week.
