This is a strange and confusing time and there might be things you are worrying about. If so, tell an adult, it always helps to talk. On this page of our website we will share stories, links and activities that might help you with those worries too. At the bottom of the page you will see some details of helplines you can get in touch with at any time and there is a leaflet full of useful resources for you and your parents/carers called 'Coronavirus mental health and wellbeing resources'. 


Beam is an emotional health and well-being service for children and young people across the Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. Please find further information and resources relating to Coronavirus below

Coronavirus Explained

Click on the cover page below to read this free digital book, illustrated by Axel Scheffler (who did the drawings for the Gruffalo and many other brilliant books). It answers lots of the questions you might have about the virus.

Social Distancing and Staying at Home

As you know, we are all being asked to stay at home at the moment to help stop the spread of this nasty virus. Watch this short story which might help you understand that your family in your home are there for you, but your friends, other family members and all of us at school are still there for you too, even though we aren't seeing each other every day.

This next video from CBBC Newsround gives some ideas about how to cope with being off school because of coronavirus.
