Lesson 3 PSHE 

LO: to know that it is important to take care of your mental health

When we hear the term ‘mental health’ it refers to how well we are feeling emotionally, whether we are enjoying life, whether we are able to make the most of life and how we manage to cope when things get difficult. We can imagine our mental health as a set of scales that are in balance – when our mental health is balanced, everything is OK. However, there are situations in life that can unbalance us – there might have been quite a few of these in your lives recently. 

Use the image of the scales and the scenario cards to explore how challenges can unbalance the scale but also, how support structures can help us to rebalance. For each scenario, think about the following questions:

  • Which side of the scales will be tipping and which way? 
  • What does this mean?
  • What could be done to help? 


Challenges, stresses and anxiety in small amounts are a normal part of life and there are things that we can do that will help support our mental health and keep things balanced. There are times, however, when challenges are too big, there are too many challenges or there is not enough or the right sort of support and that could make our scales unbalanced. This is when mental health problem could arise. 

Let’s look at ways that we can help ourselves to identify our own challenges and the support we have to help us through. Use the Emotional Scales document. On the left-hand side, write down the challenges that you are facing. Now consider each of those challenges and the support you have to overcome those challenges. Support could be doing something you enjoy, seeing a friend, talking to someone about your challenges and how they make you feel. You might find that you need to add a new section for support you would like but don’t currently have. 


Hopefully, your scales will be balanced. However, if they are not, you can find help and support here 


Lesson 1

09.04.21 - Have a go at the daily challenge 5 and see how many points you can collect from completing the different activities. 

Lesson 2

11.04.21 - Have a go at the daily challenge 4 honeycomb activity. See if you can get from the start to the finish, completing the variety of different activities. 

Computing - 10.04.21 

Complete the addition pyramid – adding the numbers in the blue boxes to make a total in the yellow box that they share.

  • What total do we get in the green box? 
  • What formulae could have made this quicker? Addition
  • Recap addition formulae

What if the 1,2,3,4,5 digits were in different boxes at the bottom? Would it affect the total that we get at the top?

Can you input formulae into the spreadsheet and then rapidly change and record the digits to find the different totals?
