St Martin's School supported Children's Mental Health Week and the theme was ''Express Yourself'.

Teachers involved all of the children in a range of activities, both at school and home learning, encouraging children's self expression.  We have shared some of these in the slideshow above.  Pupils created their own T-Shirt designs for ‘Inside Out Day’ and these were hung on washing lines across our school hall.  It was a wonderful way for the children to share and express their thoughts about how we care for others.


'Dress to Express' - the children wore something which expresses who they are, or maybe an interest they have, and these were shared during their class Google Meets. Year 3 created some fantastic "All about me" posters. Their teachers felt these posters show how amazing, happy and positive the children are, especially during these uncertain times. Year 1 children painted while listening to music from 'The Carnival of the Animals' and also designed and baked Thank You cakes.
