You may already know that it’s mental health day today. In family groups we looked at ways to keep our mood optimal. We mainly talked about anxiety and depression and some strategies to help us keep our mental health in check!
We learned that scents can ground us if we feel anxious. We tested different scents to see which worked for us. We also tried different sensory activities, from clapping our hands to using plastercene to relax.
It’s also national space week. 10B are learning about space so we combined some relaxing activities with our topic. We discussed why we were doing each activity so we knew more about mindfulness, relaxation and we talked about why mental health is important.
