It is important to be kind. The theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness week is Kindness – and how it can impact ours, and other’s mental health and wellbeing. It is important to remember that behind every comment made, there is a person – who could be impacted negatively through some of the responses they receive from others.

In Creative lessons, pupils have been learning how important bees are for helping crops to grow so that people everywhere can have enough food to eat.
The children have learned about some of the threats to bees like habitat loss and pesticides and produced some wonderful posters, stickers and badges to tell people to save the bees. They have also made some very cosy and decorative bee nests using old plastic bottles and sticks to help the bees in their local area.
Please see some of their fantastic work below! To view more, also visit our Facebook page!
