Mental Health Awareness Week 18-24 May 2020

Being kind to ourselves and others can really help us feel good - improve ours and others wellbeing. We have seen people being so kind to each other over the past few months so let's really focus on Kindness this coming week. There are some things for you to do below. Please email how you get on at: wellbeing@dovecote.school

Happy Heart Hunt

happy heart hunt

 Just make a heart from any object and tape it to a street-facing window to send your love out to the world. Encourage all your friends to do the same. Then, in a few days, take a family walk (keeping 6 feet distance from others!) to search for other hearts on houses. How fun it will be to watch the love grow!

Kindness colouring

These colouring sheets have some lovely 'kindness' quotes.  If you can't print them out, then maybe you could copy out the quote and draw your own picture. They are from the 'Random Acts of Kindness' website which would be a very good site to look at this week.
