This week’s ‘Wellbeing Wednesday’ challenge is to ‘Walk and Talk’. Go out for a walk somewhere with your family and talk to one another. What can you see around you? What can you hear? You could play eye spy together or a different game you enjoy. You could share how you’re feeling or if you have any worries.
You could take a picture of something interesting you see and send it to me! I would love to see where you go. Email pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org
A local artist in Pershore, Mr SCE, has created some wonderful graffiti art of animals which I know some children have already been finding. They are dotted around town and you can find out more details about this on the artist’s social media pages. Take a look at the robin that can be found on the Abbey Park.
Outdoor walking has a positive impact on our physical and mental wellbeing. Children can feel restricted being indoors, which can naturally affect their social skills. Being outdoors allows a child to come out of their shell and share their thoughts and experiences. This is so important right now; we need to keep our children talking.
We do this regularly in school, for example, in PSHE lessons and during whole class circle time sessions. Some classes have worry boxes for children to write down their worries and then their teachers can take time to talk this through with them individually.
