This week we are celebrating Children's Mental Health Week! Watch this assembly all about how children around the country are finding ways of getting creative to express themselves in different ways.



Now watch my video and come up with at least 5 different ways you like to personally express yourself in a creative way.



Your challenge is to be a creative as you can! Take photos and videos and send them to your teachers and they will send it on to me.

I look forward to seeing all the exciting ways you choose to express yourselves!
Have fun!
