Children's Mental Health Week is taking place on 1-7 February 2021. The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week is Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.
Place2Be have teamed up with BAFTA Kids and Oak National Academy to create a free assembly featuring pupils and well known-faces discussing the theme of ‘Express Yourself’.
Hosted by Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell, and CBBC Presenter and Place2Be Champion Rhys Stephenson, the assembly is a great way to help children to explore the creative ways they can share their thoughts and feelings.
The assembly features pupils from Featherstone Primary School, and special guests:
