In support of looking after young people’s mental health, today for #HelloYellow day, Langley Prep School pupils wore bright yellow to brighten up everyone’s day. We joined thousands of schools, offices and community groups today, taking part in Young Minds’ #HelloYellow scheme and raising awareness of issues affecting children and young people’s mental health.
By showing others they’re not alone with their mental health our whole school from Early Years to Year 8 joined in by wearing a yellow accessory.
Each Year group got involved with various yellow themed activities and discussed the importance of mental health and thinking positively.
One activity example was our Year 3s designed their very own superhero. They had to think creatively about what superpowers they would have, ranging from excellent listening skills, to having the power to be an amazing friend. The only rule was that the superheroes had to be yellow!
In Pre-Prep, the children enjoyed an assembly with Mrs Daws about World Mental Health Day. They were introduced to The Colour Monster and were encouraged to learn how to put their emotions in the right place. The children were all given their very own Colour Monster to unravel the emotions, by colouring them in according to how they feel when their emotions are in the right place.
