As Children's Mental Health Week begins this week, we have lots of activities lined up around our school.

The theme for this year is 'Find your Brave' so alongside Place 2 Be - a charity focusing on children's mental health, we are asking everyone to think about what makes them feel brave.  

Bravery comes in all shapes and sizes and is different for everyone. bravery could be in the form of sharing worries and asking for help when you need it, trying something new or making the right choices.   

In today's assembly, everyone looked at the story of The Wolf's Colourful Coat to inspire and empower our children. You can watch the story here

In class, Year 6 explored the meaning of bravery and shared times when they had been brave themselves. The group then created their own cartoon characters and planned out how they would be brave in their very own film.

Kenzie said: "Being brave can be overcoming fear - you need a lot of courage for it. You can show bravery by opening up about your fears and talking to people about how you feel."
