Today is Children's Mental Health Day and we are encouraging all of our children and their families to take part in Place2Be's Children's Mental Health Week. The theme for this year is Express Yourself.
Throughout the week you will be encouraged to explore healthy ways in which you can share your feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity.

English: Yesterday you used a comic strip to plan a diary entry for one of the best days you can remember. Today you're going to write your own diary entry about that day, whenever it was. Remember, when you write a diary it's like talking to yourself about something that's already happened (in the past tense), only you're writing it instead of saying it! Try to include information about your thoughts and feelings, as well saying what happened. You can use the Diary helpful hints from Tuesday to help you.
