Mindfulness Matters

Thursday 12 September 2019

Following a very busy morning packed with learning, Year 2 settled down to enjoy some mindfulness.

What is mindfulness?

Mindfulness is simply… noticing what is happening right now.

Mindfulness is taking notice of how your body feels and what your mind is doing. When we notice what is happening around us, it can help us to calm down when feeling sad, angry or frustrated. Mindfulness helps us deal with tough emotions and can make us happy and feel good.

Today, the children focused on their breathing and what happens to our bodies when we ex and inhale. Following this exercise, the class were calm and focused all afternoon.
