This week it is Mental Health Awareness Week. We want you to think about ways you can be kind and caring. For example; playing nicely and sharing with your brothers and sisters or helping mummy and daddy around the house. Below this message you will find some fun activities to complete. If you would like to show us your work, or tell us about your acts of kindness this week you can use the teachers email address - firstname.lastname@example.org or upload your photos and messages to our school Twitter page - @Ghyllgrove.
✨ Remember: In a world where you can be anything, be kind. ✨
