5 steps to Mental Health and Well Being
If we consider the following 5 things we can help ourselves to look after our mental health.
Connect with people
When we talk to people, and share how we feel we often feel better. Sometimes it can take more than one attempt to talk to feel better but don't give up.
Some of the following things we do at Puss Bank School to help people connect are:
Greeting each other when we first see each other on the morning- your teacher will try to say hello to everyone as you come into class in the morning.
We have Playground Friends who are on the playground at playtime who will set up games for you to join in with.
We encourage everyone to say thank you when someone does something kind. e.g holding the door open for you or in class when someone passes pencils or books to you.
At play times, the adults on the playground are there to make you feel safe and happy. You can talk to any of them if you have a problem - if they see that you are upset they will ask you can they help you.
In lots of classrooms, there are worry monsters or question boxes where you can leave messages for your teachers- they will get back to you and help you.
Mr Cooper has a box in KS2 in the library, and in KS1 the box is on the wall near Mr Branskey's room.
