Mental Health Awareness Week  

 It is Mental Health Awareness week this week, the focus is about getting outside into nature, spending time enjoying our natural environments and all they have to offer.
Take a walk in the park, through the woods or by some water, take time to look at your surroundings and listen to the sounds of birds and leaves moving in the breeze. Try growing some things in your garden, window box or get some seedlings underway, to grow your own veg!
The video below is really nice and super to share with children while teaching them the importance of looking after themselves physically and mentally.

If you can, send in some photos of your adventures in nature – we’d love to see our children out and about enjoying the fresh air. (email to
