1. Fancy Dress Friday

This year ask you students to come to school dressed up! You can choose a theme like a PJ day or fancy dress, or ask them to come in something yellow or spotty! It’s up to you – just ask each child to bring £1 with them on the day.

2. Mindfulness Moments

We know how hard the last year has been for children, teachers and schools so we want to make sure you’ve got what you need to help children’s wellbeing.

That’s why we’ve got Dr Ranj, an NHS doctor, and well-known Cbeebies presenter to take you and your class through some brilliant mindfulness exercises that can be used anywhere at any time.

Our friends over at Twinkl have also developed some brilliant supporting resources to help boost your children’s mental wellbeing.

We’ve also got mindful colouring in resources.
