Hello Yellow

For Hello Yellow, we supported World Mental Health Day by dressing up  in yellow and collecting money for charity. Then in our PSHE lessons we discussed what mental health is and how we can keep our minds healthy. We discussed lots of ways but we focussed on how important it is to talk to someone about how we are feeling. During the day, children in KS1 made happiness wands to help spread happiness and worry dolls to take away their worries. In KS2, children designed their own positivity posters and thought about how to make themselves feel good on the inside and the outside. 




One Call Away

Year 5 initiated our Hello Yellow awareness by singing "One Call Away" in a flash mob style during one of our assemblies.Their aim was to spread awareness of mental health and show the children around them that there is ALWAYS someone there to talk to.
