It was Children’s Mental Health week this week. We introduced them to the theme of the week which was ‘My Voice Matters.’ We discussed what this meant. We began to think about what matters the most to us and drew pictures of these things on a swirl. We then thought about wider issues that mattered to us like recycling and littering. We shared our swirls with a partner. Some of us had the same things on them, but no two swirls were exactly the same. We also thought about what we wanted to tell the world using our voice.
We came up with some fantastic messages to the world;
- Stop littering as it can end up in the sea and hurt the sea animals
- Stop destroying poor animal’s habitats to build houses
- Feed the homeless
- Be kind
- There is no need to fight
- Love yourself
It was also Safer Internet Day this week. We looked at how technology had changed over the years and designed our own new piece of technology to help solve a problem.
