Our Mindful Me trials are in full swing now with a year 5 class further along the process and a number of year 4 classes just beginning the journey. We were visiting two schools yesterday and were so happy to see the way the children were engaging in the activities with enthusiasm. Teachers were also having a great time! Yes, we saw you dancing!
The children in the three classes just completing their first week couldn't wait to show us their colourfully designed journals and even taught us the SELFIE technique which they had been using out and about in the country parks and at home. Some children also shared their strategies for writing about their emotions, using colour coding.
This is so encouraging. The feedback we gain from these trials gives us a real sense of where the project will take us next as we continue to develop the resources.
What a positive experience this is proving to be. Thank you to the schools involved.
