Year 1 – Healthy Minds

This week is Children’s Mental Health week and Year 1 have been focusing on ways to keep our minds healthy. First we read Beegu and explored the idea of bravery. Year 1 thought this meant:

  • When you are strong
  • When you are doing something scary
  • Trying something new
  • When you have courage
  • Asking for help

We discussed how asking for help is important for keeping our minds healthy and who we can share our thoughts and worries with.

We also looked at other ways to keep our minds healthy, including:

  • Exercising
  • Having a good sleep
  • Playing with people who make us happy
  • Getting fresh air
  • Having some quiet time
  • Eating and drinking well
  • Talking to trusted adults
