Mental Health Awareness Week 2021
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. The Theme is ‘Connect with Nature’. As a school we are continuing to work hard to support the wellbeing of our community. This initiative follows on from the work we did in February for Children’s Mental Health Week and the work that we did over lockdown.
We will be using some of the materials in school this week with the children, taking an opportunity to reflect and enjoy being outside. We will be using some of our mindfulness and wellbeing activities and resources, which can be found on the school website.
Here is the link to the website if you would like to do some activities at home https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week
We have also uploaded the resources to the website https://www.thelanes.notts.sch.uk/mental-health-awareness-week-may-2021/ This year the aim is that people take time to notice nature and try to make a habit of connecting to the nature every day. Stop to listen to the birdsong, smell the freshly cut grass, take care of a house plant, notice any trees, flowers or animals nearby. Take a moment to appreciate these connections.
If you do anything nice with your family, please send your photographs to the Year group email if you wish.
It is more important than ever that we all take time to look after our mental health and those of our loved ones. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need support and we will do all that we can to help.
