For 6 to 8 year old children, it means taking a stand and taking small, brave steps every day.
Bravery could be about sharing worries and asking for help when you need it, trying something new or making the right choices.
It's Children's Mental Health Week in many schools across the UK and thanks to the initiative of Mr Collyer, our students in Warsaw also became aware of finding their brave!
Set up by children’s mental health charity Place2Be, the week shines a spotlight on the importance of children and young people’s mental health. We listened to a story about a little wolf who finds his brave and we talked lots about finding our brave and looking for help when we are not feeling so strong inside.
To top it all off and celebrate the fact that Valentines Day is coming with a little twist, each and every Year 2 and Year 3 student received a personalised "Valentine" from their teacher in their locker at break-time. The idea behind the Valentine was to reinforce the fact that each and every one of our students is special, valued and cared for by us here at TBS Warsaw. We want each child to feel safe enough to share their problems, worries and stresses with us in their time spent with us here at TBS Primary!
