Did you know it is International Yoga Day on 21st June? International Days are becoming more and more common, giving schools a focus during that time to include this in their curriculum. Yoga and Mindfulness have proven benefits on behaviour and how that has been improved, even with the children that may not have been inclined to join in with this initially.
Schools are now looking forward to September and how they can include this within the timetable on a weekly basis. Primary PPA Cover are able to cover from EYFS to Year 6 with either Yoga or Mindfulness being the primary focus. Lessons are ran on a weekly basis for 1 hour with each class and can run on a carousel with an additional subject.

All too often we as adults focus on the negative aspects of the classroom - what didn't go well, what we could have done better and what we could have said. We need to start focusing on the positives - what a child thought or said that we hadn't expected, where their thought process came from and how well they are achieving in each topic. Data is what is looked at rather than how the children are feeling in the school and what is going on around them.
We at Primary PPA Cover are commited to focusing on the positives - children are engaged and learning through a variety of resources. They are encouraged to work together and reach an outcome based on their own findings.

We are coming to the end of this Years' Mental Health week. How poignant was the picture that charity Chasing the Stigma posted to highlight this and how many children's lifes were lost in 2017 alone?!
We want to help stop the taboo subject of mental health and bring it into the classroom with our Yoga and Mindfulness lessons. To find out more please get in touch.
How many people have already broken their New Year’s Resolutions?!
We at Primary PPA Cover are committed to providing the best quality provision within your school. So many are now looking forwards, not just to February half term but to September. With this in mind, we have taken our Yoga and Mindfulness to the next level, not only with the pupils but with staff too. This is something that is becoming more and more important within the classroom. Our sessions work well on a weekly basis following a progressive plan for both staff and children!

Here at Head Office we have been getting into the Christmas spirit. The tree is up, songs are on the radio and the advent calendars are out! We are also doing a reverse advent for the local food bank, which is a great cause. With so many people going without at this time of year, we couldn't not join in. We have also teamed up with a local charity providing essentials for women in refuge. This is the season of good will to all, which is why we are always looking at giving something back.
Have a lovely Christmas one and all!
