Forest Gate primary school pupils raised more than £700 for a mental health charity.
Pupils at Earlham Primary School took part in a range of activities, including photo booths and stalls, to recognise and support Young Minds.
Children and staff also explored ways to nurture their own mental health through relaxing and kind-minded activities, and wore yellow to raise money for the charity.
Headteacher Natalie Robinson said: "As a school we place a great emphasis on nurturing the whole child and supporting their emotional and mental health and wellbeing.
"Our whole curriculum is designed not just around academic attainment but developing our children's coping skills to boost their resilience, self-esteem and confidence."
Young Minds works to support and empower children and young people, whatever challenges they face.
The charity says three children in every classroom has a mental health problem.
