Mental Health and Well Being

Hello Yellow Day - October 8th 2021
 
We will be marking Hello Yellow Day with various activities which highlight the importance of looking after our Mental Health.  The day will give the children strategies that they can use to keep their minds healthy.
 
Activities will include yellow selfies - the children will pose with a variety of yellow items.  The photo which makes their class teacher smile the most will be declared the winner! 

Mindful Music

Children in Year 4, 5 and 6 were asked to listen to some of their teacher's favourite calming and relaxing pieces of music and choose their favourite. 

It was very close but Nuvole Bianche by Ludovico Einaudi just beat the others. Several of the children felt so chilled and relaxed they almost fell asleep!

The children came to 'school' dressed in either their favourite colour or in an outfit that expressed themselves. (scroll through)
Children were encouraged to give a little help at home,  giving acts of kindness. 
Some learned new skills!
Colouring monsters is a good way of expressing how we are feeling during lockdown.
