Flintham Primary School pupils get creative to mark Children's Mental Health Week
A great time was had by children at Flintham Primary School as every afternoon they had the choice of a range of creative challenges.
They aimed to ensure children had time away from the computer screen and more time together.
The activities, part of Children’s Mental Health Week, were completed by the children in school and those at home.
The theme of this year's Children's Mental Health Week was Express Yourself and youngsters were encouraged to find ways to share their feelings, thought and ideas through creativity.
School head Mrs Kim Bartlett said: “We have been so impressed with how our early years children to our year six and their parents have engaged with our remote learning provision during lockdown three.
“The children are really enjoying their two daily live sessions online with their teachers and classmates and are regularly sending in their work.
“We wanted to celebrate this success and have a different week. It has been so uplifting to see the children rising to the challenges.”
The children were invited to wear mismatched clothing, make a healthy snack, create an Andy Goldsworthy-style piece of natural art, make a Lego superhero, or see what they could turn a toilet roll inner into.
