Supporting Mental Health during COVID-19: Resources & Links

Dated: 30th July 2020

'5 Ways to Wellbeing'

Children's Mental Health Week - 7th-13th February 2022. This year's theme is Growing Together.


'Growing Together is about growing emotionally and finding ways to help each other grow. Challenges and setbacks can help us to grow and adapt and trying new things can help us to move beyond our comfort zone into a realm of possibility and potential.'


In school during this week we will be sharing the story Climb by Hannah Peckham. This is a beautiful story about differences and friendship. Children will be thinking about and embracing their individual characteristics and talents. They will then create their own bookmark that celebrates their uniqueness.  

St Martin's will be celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 4th March and will be linking our activities with our School's ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ ethos - as Reading Books offer so many opportunities to be Active, Keep Learning, Give, Take Notice and Connect.

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.


A reminder to parents/carers that if you have any concerns relating to mental health, please visit contact our pastoral support team or leave details for a member of the team to contact you >>
