Mental Health and Wellbeing Blog - May

2nd May 2023 – Tags: Mental Health, Wellbeing

Colley Lane Primary Academy aims to help our children by providing support for their mental health and wellbeing. This is the first of our monthly blogs that will be filled full of tips to help support our children and families. They will include activities that have taken place in classrooms, fun things to do at home and links to advice and further support.

BBC Bitesize Moodboosters

BBC Bitesize Moodboosters are short videos that help support children to understand their emotions as well as get them active. They can all be accessed here:

This months top 2 videos, selected by our children are:

PSHE KS1 / KS2: Boost - Wacky Workout

This movement-based activity increases the heart rate of pupils and can help to lift the mood of the class when a boost is needed.

Family Moodboosters: Proud Peacocks

This activity helps us regain a sense of control over our emotions, as well as giving us the language to effectively express how we feel at different times
