With so much focus on children’s wellbeing and mental health, now is the time to start focusing on different ways to bring this into the classroom and the front of their minds. Children are spending so much time on electronic ‘babysitters’ at home, so surely at school their minds should be challenged to push boundaries (in the right way)!
Yoga and Mindfulness sessions are becoming increasingly common in the run of the school day as more schools introduce this, either as part of their PE/PSHE/Drama curriculum or as an optional lunchtime or afterschool club, using them as a nurturing and fun way for children to develop body awareness and learn tools to keep them calm, present, happy and to aid manage anger and aggression through a variety of mediums including stories, breathing exercises and much more.
We at Primary PPA Cover have created a new Scheme of Work to bring all of this together as one. To find out more please get in touch!
