Mental Health Awareness Week

This week is ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’. In our PSHE lesson we learned about mental health and why it’s important to look after it. We thought about what we can do to care about our minds, our emotions, and thoughts. We thought of some good habits we can do every day to help us look after our minds – moving more is one of them. We realised that moving more helps us feel good, as when we move our bodies release ‘feel good’ hormones called endorphins. These are chemicals sent around our bodies that help us feel happy.

We went outside and took part in some animal relays! We moved like frogs, horses, crabs and bears! We had great fun and we all felt really happy cheering on our friends and doing some exercise 🙂
