COOKS Spinney Primary Academy, in Harlow, held Healthy Schools Week to help pupils take care of themselves during lockdown.
This involved pupils in all years. Activities included fitness bingo, making posters, making smoothie bowls and creating a smoothie recipe and the students shared their creations with their classmates.
The school also launched a mental health wellbeing webpage which has activities for anyone struggling with their wellbeing.
Many students have been struggling with mental health due to not being able to meet friends and pressure of work. However, through the webpage, pupils are now able to enjoy activities to complete with their friends.
Sarah Brennan, healthy schools co-ordinator, said: “We are never too young or too old to be reminded that we should take care of our physical and mental health, so we are ready to face the challenges that life presents us with.”
