24 Jun Year 5 – Invisible Dog
Year 5 watched a performance by Haringey Shed called The Invisible Dog, exploring mental health. The children engaged with a workshop following the performance, engaging with the actors to explore strategies to support our mental health, friends who is affected by mental health and who to seek support from if they need it (trusted adults).
- I liked how they inspired others to share their emotions with trusted adults (Nabiha)
- I enjoyed how interactive it was as they let us participate in activities and some children even came and performed (Mohammed)
- The performance reminded me of our book The Lost Whale as Rio’s mum also had a mental health issue and he was unaware of this until his friends told him (Melissa)
- I liked how they encouraged JJ to write his worries in a journal, this will also encourage others to do this (Soumaya)
