Hello Yellow Day

Oct

October 10th is World Mental Health Day. To support children and young people’s mental health on World Mental Health Day, we are holding a Hello Yellow Day in school. To start the day we are promoting  excercise through a ‘fencing’ demonstration. Throughout the day classes will be learning more about the Wellbeing Agents and creating their very own positive message bookmark.  You can support your children by asking them to tell you all about something they enjoyed today.

 

Choose Respect

This week is anti-bullying week. We have been talking about choices and what respect means.

‘Respect is thinking about someone’s feelings, wishes or rights’.  We are encouraging children to choose to be a good ‘Upstander’ and uphold the school’s Rights and Responsibilities.

To promote anti-bullying The Dragons Apprentice Team are selling blue wristbands for £1 at the front reception. All money raised is going to their chosen charity. The children who still have a wristband from last year are encouraged to wear their wristbands this week stand up to bullying!

Wormley National Wellbeing Award

Oct
9

Wormley is continuing to work towards the achievement of the Well-being Award for Schools. You may have noticed some of the things we have been doing in school to promote positive emotional wellbeing and good mental health.  Here are a lucky 13 below:

  1. Daily Mile: Most days the children walk/run for 15mins to try and cover a mile a day.
  2. Daily Check-in: Children can indicate to their teachers throughout the day how they are feeling and if they need support with something
  3. Mindfulness: The children have dedicated time for personal reflection and stillness
  4. Enrichment days: These are dedicated days to wellbeing and mental health such as #HelloYellow Day. All day the children participate in activities to learn how to be healthy.
  5. Rights and Responsibilities: We choose to have rights and responsibilities instead of rules. At Wormley everyone has the right to be safe and healthy; to play & learn; to be respected and to be treated equally.
  6. Nurture groups: Children who need additional emotional support
  7. Manta Rays: Lunch time nurture support
  8. Advocates: Children have adults available to support them throughout the day
  9. Calm spaces: Throughout the school the children have designated spaces equipped with personalised resources where they can calm down or take some time to relax.
  10. Social Learning Agenda: Wormley school is working with Equipping Kids (formerly the Centre of Excellence for Social Learning) to develop the children and adults as effective social learners.
  11. Forest school: For whole classes and small groups to build confidence and a connection with nature
  12. Nurture Garden: A small playground for invited children to play confidently and makes friends
  13. Collective worship: Daily opportunities for the children to reflect and develop their spirituality based on the aims of the school and Christian values identified by St Albans Diocesan

#Hello Yellow Day 2018

More children and young people than ever before are seeking help with their mental health, but fewer than one in ten find it easy to get the support they need. That’s why on World Mental Health Day, Wednseday 10th October, we are supporting YoungMinds #HelloYellow campaign to promote positive mental health and wellbeing.

This year we will be focusing on resilience and reflection. The children can come to school in their PE kit and the youngest children will receive a Hello Yellow sticker. During the day the children will take part in a range of activities linked to our wellbeing mascots. 

  • Captain Kinetic: Promotes being active and physically healthy
  • Nutrition Ninja: Promotes nutrition and healthy eating
  • Agent Lifestyle: Promotes harmony and compassion with others
  • Mindset Warrior: Promoting personal reflection and developing resilience

Our commitment to emotional wellbeing and positive mental health is so strong that we are currently attempting to a achieve the Wellbeing Award for Schools. Please support us with this by speaking to the children about #HelloYellow Day and asking the school about the various ways we support the children’s wellbeing in school.
