Mindfulness

As some of you will be aware Years 5 and 6 completed a course back in the Autumn term called PawsB. This course is designed to help promote positive wellbeing and taking time for ourselves. These children have then shared some of the ideas with children from other classes. Below you will find audio clips of some of the different practices the children completed. Why not have a go as a family and take some time to remain positive during our current time of uncertainty.
