Mental Health Awareness Week
18th - 24th May 2020
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week, with a theme of 'kindness'. During this strange time that we are all going through it is so important to take care of our mental health and to spread kindness.
Be kind to yourselves, be kind to your loved ones, be kind to others.
Here are some resources and things you can be doing at home this week to spread kindness and be mindful!
These activities would be great to do with your family! These resources can help you think about keeping your mind healthy and managing your worries :)
- Poster Competition:
Blackburn Rovers Community Trust are hosting a poster competition asking children in Year 5 and Year 6 to join the campaign to Challenge the Stigma around mental health. They would like you to design a poster to get people talking about their mental health called: “START THE CONVERSATION”
Competition entries should be emailed to email@example.com by 5pm on Friday 25th May 2020.

Welcome to the PSHE & Jigsaw Page!
PSHE is taught at SMSJ using a scheme of work called Jigsaw. It brings together PSHE, emotional literacy, social skills and spiritual development in a comprehensive scheme of learning. It is designed so that all year groups will be learning about the same puzzle piece at any given time. There are 6 puzzle pieces for the children to complete (please see overview below). Jigsaw links very closely with our collective worship values and also the British values (please see attached British values sheet below). If you would like to know more about PSHE and the Jigsaw scheme, the following website is very useful or further information can be obtained by contacting the school.
