Dear Parents and Carers,
As part of our Personal, Social and Health Education I will be starting a new programme with Classes 3, 4 and 5 this week. We often promote healthy eating and exercise for healthy bodies, we are now going to focus upon healthy minds and will be learning about being mentally and emotionally healthy.
We will be working with The Mental Health Handbook for Primary School written by Belinda Heaven which focuses on raising awareness of mental health issues and how to deal with them.
If you would like to find out more about this programme, please let me know and I can give you an outline of the programme and the resources we will be using.
We hope that this new learning will benefit the children and help them to be more confident in expressing their thoughts and feelings and in understanding the emotional needs of others.
