Children’s Mental Health Week Virtual Assembly

Oak National Academy has teamed up with charities Place2Be and BAFTA Kids to create a free assembly for Children’s Mental Health Week 2021, celebrating this year’s theme of “Express Yourself”.

Set your reminders for 9am on Monday 1st February and spread the word as Blue Peter’s Lindsey Russell and CBBC Presenter Rhys Stephenson host the assembly alongside some other special well-known faces…!

The assembly will be available on demand if you aren’t able to make it at this time.

Blue Peter YouTube

Blue Peter have launched Blue Peter on YouTube at CBBC and they were wondering if our pupils and parents would be interested in this, for entertainment outside of home-schooling hours now we’re in lockdown.

Blue Peter is the longest running kids TV show in the world and we are uploading videos to it that are suitable for 5-11 year olds. We have world record breaking challenges, arts and crafts, environmental videos, cooking and baking how tos, inspirational films, gaming, celebrity appearances, dance routines and music performances. We also feature ways of getting a Blue Peter badge, behind the scenes footage and extra content about our incredible presenters Adam, Lindsey, Mwaksy, Richie and Henry the Blue Peter dog.

If you think your child would be interested in this ask them to subscribe to https://www.youtube.com/bluepeter – (it’s obviously completely free to subscribe!) and don’t forget to watch the live programme on CBBC at 5.00pm every week, or on BBC iPlayer.

Thanks so much for your time, The Blue Peter Team!
