A day in the woods to promote positive mental health and wellbeing for children and staff.
Meditation, mindfulness, movement, music, making and marshmallows – all the Ms that can help to improve our mental health and wellbeing in the peaceful setting of the Rickling woods.
We kick off the day with a whole school assembly, highlighting the importance of our mental health and wellbeing and what we can do to make ourselves as healthy as possible. We talk about the links between physical and mental health. We talk about how being in nature can help our wellbeing.
Here are some of the activities we do (most of them are in the woods):
We are always looking for helpers and volunteers to help us on M Day so please contact the school office if you would like to help out in any way. We would welcome some new and interesting ideas and activities to support mental health and well being. We also have a mental health and wellbeing parent steering group who meet every term. Watch out for Parentmails about the next meeting.
